        Hi, sarovai. El Nino is a prolong summer, per se but the unusual heating of waters in the Equatorial Pacific makes it a phenomenon. The Philippines is one of the countries being affected by it.

            el nino means a boy, right? Travel man already linked a site for further explanation. It's a Spanish word/s for this prolonged summer. I hope this answered your question.

    It is going to keep on happening so the best the to do is expect it and be prepared.

      Thanks, Greg Cremia for your reply, May I add that farmers in the Philippines should plant water melon these days as an alternative crop aside from rice. It is more suitable for the long summer that they will experience due to El Nino.

      In an episode of the Simpsons C. Montgomery Burns built a huge device to block out all the sun.

      Maybe you could do that?

      Why do people think they can control nature?

      Is there anything that anyone can do about weather?  I think people just have to bear it.

      WIKEPEDIA my dear. This is always the answer solver and it is updated hourly and usually by the worlds most authoritative minds. It also means you should invest in a good raincoat or umbrella. Monsoon season is a cylical annual El Nino that comes to Asia. The difference is the trade winds temperature and how far they go up past the tropic zone. Mostly innitiated by water temperature and current.

      1. Cloud seeding (May not work in some areas with unseedable clouds)

      2. Dig more water wells

      3. Water Conservation

      4. Build a better irrigation system

      5. Plant hybrid rice and other crops that use less water

      weird...my favorite translation site states el nino means the nino but with the nursing spanish I know then I KNOW nino is boy or son and only used by parents to a boy of their family...it should be the boy or the son

      I do know that I am more happy with el nino in AZ than I was in AL specially because of the type of weather patterns it brings...when I moved here for the first time in 1979 was the first time I had ever heard the phrase...and 1979 had an el nino that was wonderful, rained every afternoon for 6 weeks....but it is very dry lately...hope by our coming home the el nino comes up here and gives you guys in the Phillipines a break eh?
      love to you!!!!!

        Looks like your wish for us had been answered, RNMSN. Light rainfall blanketed our dried farm here in our area (Camarines Sur, Bicol, Philippines. We can endure the heat of the sun, but opportunistic people who steal crops from disenfranchised farmers are to hurting to endure.

      conserve water.  I think we cannot prevent it from happening.  All we can do is prepare and be ready when it comes.

        That's what we're doing all the time, borge_009. Nature takes its course; reacting by hiding it's source, so, the water level goes down everytime El Nino is present. Cloud seeding helps a little bit, but not enough to sustain dying crops in the farm.
