Impending Danger

The inner filled ring is the ring that you should pay the most attention to, as it shows when severe weather potential activity is extremely likely in your immediate vicinity. When the inner filled ring is red, electrical activity is almost certainly occurring in that area. If you are within the range of the inner filled ring, seek shelter and remain until the ring is out of Red Alert.
