The Canadian Hurricane Centre says this year's season will likely be quieter than average due to the so-called El Nino effect and cooler ocean temperatures. Meteorologist Bob Robichaud says El Nino, a patch of warm water in the Pacific Ocean, can interfere with the formation of hurricanes in the Atlantic. (Robichaud says hurricanes draw heat from the ocean and pump it into the atmosphere, so when the water is cooler, there are fewer storms.)
