There is now a new model for predicting where hurricanes will hit, but it still has a long way to go.
The model, which is pretty unique, may one day pinpoint the exact coastline that a hurricane is likely to hit months in advance.
A team of Coastal Carolina University researchers say if they can further develop their technique, they could drastically change the time people have to plan for a tropical event.
Researchers say there is still a lot of work to be done before they can develop the right method for more specific hurricane season outlooks, but they think it's possible within the next two years.
