Weird Coastal El Nino Clobbers Peru: 80 Killed, $1.4 Billion in Damage

Dr. Jeff Masters,

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

The world’s costliest flood disaster of 2017 is still unfolding across parts of coastal Peru, where extreme rainfall atop normally dry terrain has led to episodes of major flooding over the last few weeks. More than 110,000 people have been displaced by flooding since December, and more than 80 deaths have been reported. Peru normally gets its heaviest rains during El Niño events, but unusually warm waters in this case have been limited to the easternmost tropical Pacific.

Dilemma: Past and Future of Science in Society

Dr. Ricky Rood,

Professor, University of Michigan
