Here are my recommendations to address future weather events:
#1 Leverage the Amber Alert or similar system to notify citizens in affected areas.
#2 Direct GEMA to create a Threat Level System based on confidence level from local and national weather services.
#3 Provide 15 minute updates for schools and business from 5:00
a.m to 9:30
#4 Educate and train the public before hand during PSAs
#5 Establish unofficial partnerships with state and local governments.
