The color of the alert indicates the severity of the event and the probability of the event occurring. Currently, the alert level is at Green, as the discontinuation was issued but the certainty is unlikely.
At this level, there is negligible impact on human safety, assets are basically undamaged and income earning potential is unaffected. However, for the current alert level, moderate impacts are still possible. There is the potential for possible injuries, where behavioral changes are required to ensure safety. There may be minor damage to property, with income-earning temporarily disrupted and a couple of communities are affected.
The Met Office is advising the public to assess your environment for safety concerns, don’t take unnecessary risks, remain vigilant, and continue to monitor official sources for information.
