El Nino finally here; but this 1 is weak, weird and late

Yahoo! National News - 1 hour 47 min ago

FILE - In this Feb. 24, 1998 file photo, a woman waits for a tow truck on the hood of her brother's pickup after a wall of mud plowed down Laguna Beach Canyon Road in Orange County, Calif. forcing her to evacuate her home, in background. A long anticipated El Nino weather warping is finally here. But for drought-struck California, it’s too little, too late, meteorologists say. The National Weather Service Thursday proclaimed the somewhat infamous weather phenomenon El Nino is now in place. It’s a warming of a certain patch of the central Pacific that changes weather patterns worldwide, associated with flooding in some places, droughts elsewhere, a generally warmer globe, and fewer Atlantic hurricanes. El Ninos are usually so important that economists even track it because of how it affects commodities. This year's El Nino that has arrived isn’t big and is late so it’s unlikely to do much to alleviate the current California drought. (AP Photo/Nick Ut, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — A long anticipated El Nino has finally arrived. But for drought-struck California, it's too little, too late, meteorologists say.

"It’s about the security of our weapons systems themselves and everything that touches them. It’s a pervasive problem and I think we have to pay a lot more attention to it," Kendall told Reuters after a speech to the American Society of Naval Engineers in Washington. Kendall said he planned to add cyber security to the next phase of his "better buying power" initiative, and was also working on a special section on cyber security requirements to be added to the Pentagon's guideline for buying weapons systems.
