Worst El Nino in 60 years on way - experts
ONE of the strongest and wettest El Ninos will soon pummel East Africa, bringing heavy rains, floods and malaria. The prospect of a record- breaking El Nino is worrying since the 1997 weather killed many people in Kenya, and left hundreds homeless.
Scientists say the condition, experienced across the world, could be the strongest since the 1950s. Weather experts from East Africa will meet in Dar es Salaam next week to discuss likely scenarios and disaster response. Weather agencies worldwide have confirmed El Nino is on the way.
