IMD's Color Coded Warnings UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued orange alert for several districts in Kerala from May 19, warning of very heavy rainfall.

  • A cyclonic circulation lies over the Comorin area and adjoining south Tamil Nadu and a trough runs from the cyclonic circulation to Lakshadweep, triggering widespread rain across Kerala.

  • Yellow alert is issued for nine districts on May 16.

Colour- Coded Weather Warning

  • It is issued by the IMD whose objective is to alert people ahead of severe or hazardous weather which has the potential to cause damage, widespread disruption or danger to life.

  • Warnings are updated daily.

  • The IMD uses 4 colour codes are:

    • Green (All is well): No advisory is issued.

    • Yellow (Be Aware): Yellow indicates severely bad weather spanning across several days. It also suggests that the weather could change for the worse, causing disruption in day-to-day activities.

  • Orange/Amber (Be prepared): The orange alert is issued as a warning of extremely bad weather with the potential of disruption in commute with road and rail closures, and interruption of power supply.

  • Red (Take Action): When the extremely bad weather conditions are certainly going to disrupt travel and power and have significant risk to life, the red alert is issued.

  • These alerts are universal in nature and are also issued during floods, depending on the amount of water rising above land/in a river as a result of torrential rainfall.

  • For instance, when the water in a river is ‘above normal’ level, or between the ‘warning’ and ‘danger’ levels, a yellow alert is issued.
