“Godzilla El Nino” Heading to California This Winter

Standard

This Year’s El Nino Compared to the El Nino of 1997.

Forecasts show an above 90% chance of a strong El Nino hitting California this winter, with experts warning that it could be the strongest in recorded history.  The El Nino is already bigger than it was in 1997, the largest in recent history.  There is also an 85% chance that it will last all the way through to spring.

While California has experienced four years of droughts, the massive storm is unlikely to end the problem. In fact, with the soil being so dry, California will be especially susceptible to landslides and flooding.  This warning comes after weeks of experts saying this year’s El Nino had the potential to be extraordinarily large.
