El Nino: weather anomaly danger for agriculture

The Australian Bureau of meteorology (BOM) notes based on anomalies in surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, that now the El Nino clearly has established itself and that is will intensify. In recent weeks, the temperature in the tropical Pacific Ocean has increased 1.6 ° C above normal levels and still rising. This is the highest value for 19 years. Usually, the water reached his highest temperatures at the end of the year, so we have still three months until the maximum temperature is reached.
Should have confirmed the prediction, we had the biggest anomaly since 1997, more than in the El Nino years 2002 and 2009. It is expected that the current El Nino will continue in spring 2016.
The El Niño phenomenon can cause heavy rainfalls and floods in Asia and East Africa of to extreme heat and in South America and wreak great damage in agriculture.
