Terry’s Take: Weather warnings, Australia vs the United States
SEVERE STORMS DOWN UNDER…
It’s always severe weather season somewhere! Right now the season is kicking off in Australia and the southern hemisphere where spring is underway. It’s always interesting to see how other countries put out their warnings. As you’ll see, it’s a bit different in Australia than here in the states!
Now that you’ve seen what they do down under, here’s a U.S. version of a thunderstorm warning. A bit more polished with polygons and radar to add a more precise aspect to the warning. The text segment is also more specific in regards to details.
In the end, most countries have developed warning systems that save lives and property during severe weather outbreaks. However, as Dorothy was fond of saying, “there’s no place like home”, especially when it comes to advanced weather warnings.
