Weather 360 introduces a 3-Level Alert System as severe storms target the East Coast

Along with a stream of Weather Broadcasts on our YouTube channel, Weather 360, we would also like to release and test a 3-Level Alert System, which we have abbreviated 3.A.S (not purposely based on E.A.S, which is the NWS’ Emergency Alert System), in which Weather 360 outlines threats on a 3 leveled system that places different types of alert at either of the following;

Level I:  Most Urgent

Level II: Elevated Alert

Level III: Alert

Guidelines for the Alert System

Level I situations:  This event must be within the next 24 hours and may either have a watch or warning from the NWS associated with it or is expected to have a watch or warning shortly.   This event is expected to pose a potential threat to an area and is classified as Most Urgent.  In these situations it is always best to gather last-minute supplies for the storm.

Level II situations: This event must be within the next 48 hours and could pose a potential threat to an area.  Depending on the event, a watch may already be issued for this area.  If your area is given a Level II Elevated Alert, the time is now to be on your way to preparation for the potential threat.

Level III situations: This event must be within the next 72 hours and has the possibility to pose a potential threat.  Depending on the event, a watch may already be issued for this area.  If your area is under a Level III threat, now is the time to start preparation for the potential threat.
