I am glad to announce that I am introducing a Severe Weather Risk scale. This scale will be issued all the time whenever any alert,watches or updates are being made. This scale consists of Marks.
MARK 0. Mark 0 is a low threat level. This level means almost calm weather and no Special Activation of Alerting systems. THREAT LEVEL- Lowest.
MARK 1. Mark 1 is a low level threat but stands important in alerting people. It is the first step of Severe Weather. THREAT LEVEL is LOW
MARK 2. Mark 2 is Very important as it refers to IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED. I. e people must start preparing for the event coming. This scale doesn't deal with THREAT LEVEL
THREAT LEVEL IS 1 Slightly LOW
MARK 3. Mark 3 is a scale which means Moderate THREAT with IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED. Mark 3 alert means THERE IS A MODERATE THREAT from the Weather. THREAT LEVEL MODERATE
Mark 4. Mark 4 deals with INCREASED THREAT and VERY IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED and THIS LEVEL DOESN'T DEAL WITH LEVEL OF THREAT FROM SEVERE WEATHER.
MARK 5. is the HIGHEST,MOST DANGEROUS LEVEL. IT MEANS HIGH ALERT, HIGHLY DANGEROUS DAMAGE, VERY VERY IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED. THREAT LEVEL IS MAXIMUM
THESE LEVELS LEGENDARIES-
LEVEL URGENCY RAINCHANCE SEVERITY
MARK 0 - LESS RAINFALL WATCH LOWEST
MARK 1 - LITTLE RAINFALL ALERT LOW
MARK 2 - MODERATE THIS LEVEL IS ONLY FOR DISASTER PREPARDNESS
MARK 3 - URGENT MODERATE MODERATE
MARK 4 - VERY URGENT..THIS LEVEL IS ONLY FOR DISASTER PREPARDNESS
MARK 5 - V.VERY URGENT.. HIGH HIGHEST SEVERITY
SO THE MARK 2 AND 4 CAN BE ISSUED ANY TIME AND DEALS WITH DISASTER PREPARDNESS AND NOT WITH RISK OF EVENT. MARK 1,3,5 DEAL WITH RISKS FROM WEATHER.
MARK 0 IS MOSTLY FOR RAINFALL WATCHES IN INDIA
