Public storm

To act as a Public storm warning signal and coordination system that generates a coordinated National Civil Protection System response to the threat posed by a tropical cyclone, reducing the effects of this unsettling agent.

Stages and Actions

Two alert tables—one for when the cyclone is moving away from a cyclone-affected area and the other for when it is approaching one—make up the Early Warning System.

When moving toward a nation’s territory or a impacted area, the Early Public storm warning signal System is said to be in this phase. This table takes into account five warning stages, which are listed below with a brief description of each and general instructions for the National Civil Protection System, which includes governmental agencies, organizations, and social and private institutions, as well as the general public.

Additionally, each System member is required to carry out the specific actions that fall within their respective spheres of geographical and legal action.

Public storm warning signal 1

  1. Blue Alert – Notice

The blue alert is sent out when a tropical cyclone is sighted or when it has been more than 72 hours since the possibility of the cyclone’s 34-knot (63 km/h) wind line beginning to affect. The risk is regarded as Minimal. During this time, bulletins will be released at least once every 24 hours. The general populace is predicted to:

  • Stay informed.
  1. Green Alert – Prevention

The Green Alert is issued when a Public storm warning signal has reached at a distance where, depending on its severity, the impact of the 34-knot wind line is anticipated in an impacted area within 72 to 24 hours. The risk is viewed as being minimal. During this time, bulletins will be released at least once every 12 hours. The general populace is predicted to:

  • Stay informed
  •  Acquire knowledge of tropical cyclones and precautions to take.

  1. Yellow Alert – Preparation

The Yellow Alert is issued when a tropical cyclone is so close that, depending on its intensity, the impact of the 34-knot wind line is anticipated in a impacted area within 60 to 12 hours. The threat is viewed as being moderate. During this time, bulletins will be released at least once every six hours. The general populace is predicted to:

  • Keep paying close attention to official information.
  • Be aware of where temporary shelters are located.
  • Pay attention to navigational instructions and Civil Protection when in islands, on the high seas, or near maritime oil facilities.

Public storm warning signal no. 1

  1. Orange Alert – Alarm

The Orange Alert is issued when a tropical cyclone is so close that, depending on its severity, an affected location is projected to experience the 34-knot wind line’s impending impact within the next 36 to 6 hours. The risk is viewed as being high. During this time, bulletins will be released at least once every three hours. The general populace is predicted to:

  • Get out of buildings and risky areas.
  • Obey the authorities’ instructions.
  • Halt all maritime navigation operations.
  • Put a stop to beach and maritime recreation.
  1. Red Alert – Affectation

Depending on the tropical cyclone’s intensity, the Red Alert is activated when its 34-knot wind line is approaching an affected area or when it may do so in less than 18 hours. A maximum hazard is taken into account. During this time, bulletins will be released at least once every three hours. The general populace is predicted to:

  • Complete population protection
  • Comply with the authorities’ instructions.

When the cyclone is leaving an impacted area, either after an impact or in the absence of one, the Public storm warning signal is said to be in this phase. This table takes into account five warning stages, which are listed below with a brief description of each and general steps that the National Civil Protection System and the general public should take. The specific actions that are related to each National System member’s jurisdictional and geographic spheres of action must also be carried out by each member of the National System.

Changes in your surroundings such as storm water runoff patterns on slopes (especially where water collects), earth movement, small landslides, flow, or progressively leaning trees.

Go to a designated public shelter if you are told to evacuate or if you feel it is unsafe to remain in your home.
