Director of the National Weather Service Samuel Maiha says the La Nina season is predicted to be more severe than before.
“There are very strong predictions and the La Nina usually starts after the El Nino,” he says.
La Niña events are usually wetter. La Niña-associated prolonged rainfall has led to flooding and landslides, tropical cyclones, destruction roads, infrastructure, agriculture crops and others.
Maiha says the prediction is an early warning for appropriate government agencies to plan ahead of the expected season.
