El Nino is a cyclical and global event that
happens every two to twelve years. The last time we
experienced this phenomenon was in 1997 and
1998. This occurs when the usual pattern of the
westward- blowing winds is disrupted across the
Pacific. Warm ocean waters remain in the east
instead of migrating to the west, causing changes in
weather patterns.
Interestingly, El Nino has different effects on
different parts of the globe. While we’re
experiencing a drought, El Nino can cause heavy
rains in other parts of the globe like South America.
The reduced rainfall will affect the growth of
crops. Food shortage can be one of the main
problems we might face in the coming months.
Another effect of El Nino is the power
shortage. This is because one of the main sources of
our electricity is the hydroelectric power plants that
are all over the country. Hydroelectric power plants
get energy from the flowing water stored in dams.
Even if El Nino is a natural phenomenon, it
is still important that we do our part to help lessen
its effects on our community.

a. scary
