can el nino cause very devastating storms?
here in the philippines today, temperatures have soared up to 40 C, because of the el nino phenomenon. PAGASA says that by June the el nino will end. will this cause sea temperatures to rise? and create really devastating typhoons? (they're called hurricanes in the East Pacific and on the Atlantic)

El Niño cannot cause ocean temperatures to rise, because warm ocean temperatures cause El Niño.
Currently, the waters around the Philippines are 1 Kelvin warmer than they averaged between 1985 and 1997.
The warm waters often do result in the formation of storms in some places, and droughts in others. El Niño moves weather systems around somewhat.
The Philippines normally experience drought during an El Niño event.
That is what happened this year.
This El Niño has weakened already, and is expected to be gone by summer in time for some typhoons to relieve the drought.

Maybe. I'm in the Philippines too. Manila to be exact. We might experience tough storms this coming months. I suggest that we should prepare before it's too late. And of course, don't forget to pray.
