That's how bad they think it will be. Schools are open Saturdays and holydays now, so they can close sooner this year. Ecuador will use some schools as shelters. Both countries will be the most affected in the area by this event. I was there last time El Niño made a mess back in the 90's and it was a 24/7 disaster.

It's already been a couple of months since they were discussing this measures, including drills and also NASA will assist them.

Due the climatic changes that cause El Niño in our country, with high temperatures, torrential imminent flooding rains and flooding, the Ministry of Education (Minedu) submitted an official letter to 14 regional governments to recommend to evaluate quickly reschedule (reschedule) school hours in order to complete the November 30 school year, and not in December.

It's good to prepare, however 'the blob' may keep moisture systems north of California depriving California of drought relief as well as sparing West Coast Mexico, Central and South America from the conditions of the 97-98 El Nino event.

It's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out globally, weather patterns around the world are different than 97-98. It's going to be interesting on the East Coast too with the Gulf Stream slow down.

We have not seen rain here in coastal PNG, for months now, had some major frost in parts of our highlands region which saw at least 20+ people died, due to food shortages as their gardens where destroyed by the frost and government supplies failed to deliver on time.

I cannot remember when it last rained, so this El Nino whether is really taking it's toll on parts of the country here. It would be nice to get some rain soon here in Port Moresby.

Freakish weather patterns to say the least..
