La Nina, the climate pattern that brings colder-than-normal ocean temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific, is expected to impact Latin America and the Caribbean with a highly active hurricane season and greater climate variability. Experts warned of the potential for floods, droughts, and an increase in the frequency of hurricanes in the region. The World Meteorological Organization organized a webinar to address the threat of La Nina, as Hurricane Beryl, the earliest storm on record to reach Category 5 level, tore across the eastern Caribbean. The experts also highlighted the potential for a repeat of historic droughts in South America, similar to those recorded between 2020 and 2023. Both La Nina and El Nino have had costly impacts on regional economies by hurting crops like wheat, rice, and corn. The patterns tend to last between nine and 12 months and usually occur every two to seven years.
