AlertNet / Reuters Experts disagree whether El Niņo is back in Peru: "One of the scientists on the committee, Dr Ronald Woodman, executive president of the Geophysics Institute, told AlertNet that current sea temperature was two degrees Celsius above its normal level. He said this would be defined as a 'weak' El Niņo impact, but taking into account the intense rains and greater water flows, it could be described as a 'moderate' El Niņo.'There are serious infrastructure problems in Piura. That's what leads to the considerable damage,' he said. According to Woodman, there were no adequate flood prevention defences along the river." The difference between weak and moderate is not just an academic distinction.
