All the hype is mostly that. Some scientists have even said that the
unusually warm water off the coast is more likely due to lower intensity
NW winds this year - though whether or not El Niqo is a pertial cause of
that is unknown. The reports say that the most significant weather
impact that can be attributed to EN so far this year is fewer hurricanes
in the Atlantic.
