************************** 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>.
