Hazard information in DisasterAWARE©

PDC's DisasterAWARE platform provides a wealth of real-time information about hazards happening around the world. Choose a hazard type below to learn more about what to do during the event of a hazard, or to find out about system thresholds for hazards displayed in the system and alerts. 

Now Including SmartAlert™

With PDC’s SmartAlert technology, you select the areas and hazards to monitor and we’ll automatically alert you to threats within or approaching those areas.

Pacific Disaster Center assigns severity levels of Warning (most severe), Watch, Advisory, or Information (least severe). The levels represent the potential of an event to be hazardous. Please note these are public safety guidelines, not deterministic predictions.

Warning means severe impact or damage is highly likely and anticipated. Watch means modest impact is likely and the public should be alert. Advisory means continue to monitor, but impact is currently not likely/not very large, etc.

While the precise meaning will vary from one hazard to another, PDC’s assigned status (Warning, Watch, Advisory, Information) simplifies alerting and reporting for faster, more efficient decision making.

PDC recognizes up to four alert severities:

Information

 Advisory

 Watch

 Warning

For Disaster Management Practioners: SMS Text | Email | App notifications
