El Nino is now upon PNG !

Papua New Guinea is presently into the peak of an intensified drought scenario (El Nino induced) ever witnessed in recent times.

Since June 2015, communities have experienced low rainfall and prolonged dry spells, with accompanying frosts and wild fires threatening food and water securities for over half the country’s seven million people.

Many affected communities have consequently witnessed the wilting of garden crops with low household food supplies, and shortage of clean water for drinking and domestic chores. The occurrence of frost in the high altitudes were reported to be some of the worst ever experienced. There are unconfirmed reports of deaths in some instances – due to hunger.

Australian scientists forecast a "substantial" El Nino weather phenomenon for 2015, potentially spelling deadly and costly climate extremes, after officially declaring its onset in the tropical Pacific. El Nino had been expected last year when record-breaking temperatures made 2014 the hottest in more than a century.

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology said while the thresholds were not met until now, it was expected to be a significant event. The Japan Meteorological Agency also confirmed the phenomenon had begun and forecast it would continue into late 2015.
