EL NIÑO'S IMPACT ON COASTAL COMMUNITIES
El Niño is a weather phenomenon that occurs when the ocean temperatures in the Pacific Ocean become warmer than usual.
This warming of the ocean can cause changes in weather patterns around the world, including increased rainfall in some areas and droughts in others.
Coastal communities are particularly vulnerable to the effects of El Niño, as they can experience flooding, erosion, and damage to infrastructure.
To prepare for El Niño, coastal communities can take steps such as building sea walls, improving drainage systems, and creating emergency plans.
It is important for coastal communities to stay informed about the potential impacts of El Niño and to take action to protect themselves and their property.
While El Niño can have negative effects on coastal communities, it can also bring benefits such as increased fish populations and improved agricultural yields in some areas.
