El Niño is a weather phenomenon that occurs every few years, characterized by warmer than average sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean.
This year, the County is expected to experience an El Niño winter season, which will bring changes in weather patterns.
The winter season is expected to be wetter than usual, with an increased chance of heavy rainfall and flooding.
Temperatures are expected to be milder than usual, with fewer cold snaps and snowfall. Residents should prepare for the possibility of power outages, road closures, and other disruptions caused by the weather.
It is recommended to stock up on emergency supplies, such as food, water, and batteries, and to have a plan in place for evacuation if necessary.
Overall, while an El Niño year can bring challenges, being prepared and informed can help residents stay safe and minimize the impact of the weather.
