#Regram #RG @PanosPictures: Photo by Vlad Sokhin @lens_pacific: Teiwaki Teteki, 28, carries his 4-year-old son Paaia to the shore in heavy rain. Teiwaki and other passengers travelled to Taborio village from North Tarawa by "te wa uowa" (double) canoe, which is the only way to get from north of the Tarawa Atoll to the south during high tide.
As El Niño continues to dominate the tropical Pacific, its impacts over Kiribati islands includes more rain and windy conditions. For nearly two years, it has been raining almost every day in the northern part of the Gilbert Islands chain. In 2015, the annual rainfall was 4 times higher than the average. Despite this, people of Kiribati have difficulties accessing clean drinking water. Most of the houses in South Tarawa don't have water tanks or gutters to collect the rain water. People usually fetch water from wells, but because of the open deification and domestic animals activity, the well water carries infections and can't be used without boiling it first.
In the past few years, Kiribati has experienced several diarrhoea outbreaks, caused by rotavirus, which lead to hospitalisation and even the death of young children. Dengue virus has recently re-emerged in various locations of South Tarawa and health workers are staying on high alert, closely monitoring all cases.

@healeywaterops as I recall an incredibly long and very sick left #elnino2016 #peahi

I’m seeing some memories from 2 years ago today the unforgettable #brockswell and #elnino2016 @niccolo_porcella

@yusurf another angle of an epic ride #maddogs #peahi #elnino2016

February 25th, 2016 was a special day; the peak of the #brockswell, one of the better days SD has seen in a stretch. Enough energy pulsing through the Northeast Pacific to thin the herd; only familiar faces out that morning. Less jockeying for position and aggressive energy; and more a shared sense of stoke and mutual respect. It was also the day I befriended @theoceanandwaves, who took these shots. The first is his entry for the @stab Full Frame Competition.

From his post: "This was taken February 25th, 2016, at #blacksbeach. It was the day @john_john_florence won the Eddie, the day of the #brockswell. Since becoming a Professional Photographer living in San Diego, I’ve never seen a larger day. It still feels surreal, it feels like that day was given to me by someone. I was the only photographer who managed to get down to the sand and hike midway up the cliffs. A massive high tide prevented the other local surf photographers from getting down there. I was ready for it and woke up at 2am to hike down before the tide took away the path. Only 15 guys paddled out, who have all become friends since. Everyone’s board broke, everyone went through some brutal breath holds. For the past 2 years I’ve been praying for another day like this. Counting down he moments before I get so see something like this again. This is a part of San Diego history. The sheer amount of messages the I get when I post photos from this day speaks for itself, this is engrained in the minds of our locals. #StabFullFrame #FeelsLikeFreedom @stab @OneillUSA"

A day we'll not forget.

One of Palau's world-famous attractions is Jellyfish Lake, where tourists can snorkel with millions of jellyfish. Although the popular myth is that they can't sting, these mastigias jellies, descendants from a single lagoon species, actually do sting but so mildly that only people with sensitive skin can feel it.

After a three-month drought in early 2016, the jellyfish started dying because the water in the lake, which has limited water exchange with the ocean and lagoon, became too warm. Now, two years on and the famous Jellyfish Lake is still empty which has been a big blow to Palau's tourism. This happened before during the 1998 El Nino, when it took two years for the lake to recover. Luckily, the polyps by which the jellyfish reproduce are still present in Jellyfish Lake, so the jellyfish population is expected to recover to its former glory once the water cools off.

Koror State, who collect $50 for each tourist visiting the lake, has lost millions in revenue over the last two years. One suggested strategy to remedy the situation was they should spend some money on having a couple of large loads of ice dumped in the lake to speed up the process. Hmmm… we're not convinced! 📸: @mantaguy

We all know the 2016 bleaching event was devastating for many of the worlds coral reefs, but the vitality and chaos of sites like The Kidney on Landaas House reef give us hope regarding the overall resilience of these ecosystems.🐠
