Default Environment Canada to provide more details about severe weather risks

February 22, 2013 Effective March 13, 2013 Environment Canada will make some changes to the public alerting program in an effort to provide more detailed information about the potential threat of a severe thunderstorm or tornado.

According to Environment Canada, the warning content within all severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings will contain a forecast valid time for each alert bulletin.

Beginning March 13, "a valid time will be added to allow the public to have a better sense of how long the threat exists," explains Geoff Coulson, Warning Preparedness Meteorologist at Environment Canada. "In addition, Environment Canada has worked with Provincial Emergency Management Organizations and other agencies to develop more specific impact and call-to-action statements that better define the threat a severe summer storm may pose."

What do you guys think?!
