  17. D. All of the above! El Nino and Hurricanes MEDIUM The weather phenomena known as El Niño…. • Commonly occurs around Christmas time every 4 to 7 years • Is indicated by a warming of the waters off the coast of Peru • Is indicated by a slowing down or reversal of the trade-winds • All of the above. Back to Jeopardy
