El Nino still here until July - Pagasa

By Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (May 17) -- The El Niņo phenomenon is not yet over.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has reported that there have been no indications so far to show that El Nino is weakening its scorching grip anytime soon.

Earlier reports have stated that the heat wave brought by El Niņo is seen to ease out by June this year. However, Provincial Meteorological Chief Edsin Culi in an interview said that based on latest weather data, the dry spell is now likely to prevail over the country until July or August.

"Naa pa gihapo'y kainiton nga masinati nato hangtod sa bulan sa Hulyo o Agosto (We will still experience the heat wave until either July or August)," said Culi.

In its El Nino Advisory No. 9, PAGASA reported that areas that experienced dry spell conditions as of April were Cebu, Negros Orienta, Leyte and Samar provinces, Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, Davao del Norte, Surigao del Norte and Lanao del Sur.

Drought conditions were likewise observed over the provinces of Rizal, Aklan, Antique, Guimaras, Iloilo and Negros Occidental after experiencing below to way below normal rainfall for five consecutive months from December 2009 to April this year.

Crop damage due to the heat wave was likewise pegged at P12 billion. (PIA/rmn) [top]
