A new study by researchers at Clemson University and Mississippi State said that between 1851 and 2008 the number of hurricanes in the North Atlantic increased, but the severity of the storms has not.

Their conclusions were based on statistical analysis and available records and they contradicted research that says hurricanes have gotten worse with global warning.

The study also found no evidence that the United Sates is getting hit with more intense storms.
