**********************We would appreciate additional reports as El Nino
will soon be beginning the period when its normal effects can be expected.
Casual observations of unusual climatic, biological, meteorological or
human effects (even if their links to the current ENSO event are tenuous)
may be extremely useful as we have never had an opprtunity to observe an
ENSO so closely before.

Reports of epidemic disease outbreaks (human or livestock) should also be
sent to ProMED-mail <promed@usa.healthnet.org>.**************************
