The National Weather Service is introducing a new kind of severe weather warning system based upon the damage the storm is predicted to cause.
The system created has 5 tiers, 2 for thunderstorms and 3 for tornados and will use words like "Mass Devastation", "unsurvivable", and "Catastrophic" to get the attention of listeners. Andy Bailey, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill says the idea is to encourage people to take action.
