Should You Care About El Niño?

11/2/2018 (Permalink)

By now you've likely heard of, or experienced, the weather phenomenon known as El NiñoBut What Is It Exactly? And How Will It Affect You?

 An El Niño happens when warmer water from the Pacific travels Eastward. It's estimated an El Niño happens every 2-7 years.

How Does It Affect Weather?

For places like California, we see an increase of colder and wetter weather. Compare that to New York whos forecast was in the 70s late Dec 2015. There's a pattern here; places that usually get wetter winters are getting warmer ones and vise-versa.

So When Will This BIG El Niño Hit?

 Well El Niño isn't one storm. In fact, it's multiple storms. You may have already experienced some or you may live in a place where you're experiencing a warmer winter. Urban Flooding, Mudslides, Traffic Jams, & Power Outages are all left overs of an El Niño Storm. Either way the affects are felt, subtlety or drastically. 

 El Niño is expected to last until about March. If you're in an area where water is affecting you and your home, SERVPRO® Of Downey is ready to help. (562) 392-3007
