The Negro River and other tributaries in the Amazon basin, which are in the process of flooding, are beginning to approach the level considered normal for the period. The cycle of flood and ebb is part and parcel of living in the Amazon. An example of this was the record of a ferry that was stranded for 97 days near Manaus, and which may leave the area after the level of the Negro River rises. With the start of the rainy season, the boat detached itself from the sandbank and was able to sail after Christmas. Experts are already studying and forecasting the climate in the region for 2024. According to the Geological Service of Brazil, the trend is for El Niño to be stronger until mid-June due to the association of the phenomenon with the warming of the Atlantic, according to data from the World Meteorological Organisation.
