dc.description.abstract Many meteorological hazards that occur can be forecast, which allows the population to be warned. The number of warnings that a person receives from different sources play a role in whether an adaptive response is taken. Weather hazard information is communicated via a number of technologies in a variety of ways. The technologies that offer the most promise for reaching all populations are television, radio, phones, the internet, and outdoor sirens/loudspeakers. Whereas these technologies are beneficial in warning the populace, there are several limitations that can hinder a person from getting a warning from these sources. Additionally, people with less accessibility to the latest technologies tend to also be among those most vulnerable to the effects of natural hazards.
