How does El Nino influence the tides of both coasts of the United States?

    The surface waters in the Pacific tend to get warmer (or cooler) and the surface pressures also change. When these happen simultaneously, and “oscillation” occurs…it is called El Nino. This may cause flooding or drought on the Pacific side. On the Atlantic side, hurricanes and severe weather may be reduced by El Nino because it disrupts winds coming from the African region that may produce hurricanes in the Atlantic. Hope that wasn’t too confusing.
