WORLD METEOROLOGY DAY
World Meteorological Day takes place every year on March 23rd, it showcases the essential contribution of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services to the safety and wellbeing of society and is celebrated with activities around the world. The importance of meteorology resides in understanding the way the world works. People can also plan better if they know what's coming. As an example, those who live in "tornado alley" have storm cellars.
Modern meteorologists work with city planners to make sure it is safe for residents and businesses. Our main goal as architects is also to ensure safety within all the spaces that we design and create.
Weather, climate, and water extremes are becoming more frequent and intense in many parts of the world because of climate change. Therefore, more of us are exposed to multiple related hazards, which are evolving due to population growth, urbanization, and environmental degradation.
Forecasts of the impact that the weather will have on this planet are vital to save lives. Yet, one in three people are still not adequately covered by early warning systems. We are seeking to create awareness about this important issue through our sustainable architecture in order to accompany every person that puts their trust on us with the building of their home.
Have you heard about weather warning? There are three types of warnings which explains how dangerous the weather is.
Yellow Warning: Yellow warnings can be issued for a range of weather situations. Many are issued when it is likely that the weather will cause some low-level impacts, including some disruption to travel in a few places.
Amber Warning: There is an increased likelihood of impacts from severe weather, which could potentially disrupt your plans. This means there is the possibility of travel delays, road and rail closures, power cuts and the potential risk to life and property.
Red Warning: It is very likely that there will be a risk to life, with substantial disruption to travel, energy supplies and possibly widespread damage to property and infrastructure. You should avoid travelling, when possible, and follow the advice of the emergency services and local authorities.
