Napolitano: New Terror Alerts Provide More Threat Details

April 21, 2011  | 

A new two-tiered system of terror alerting replacing the five-color approach will provide the public with more details about "specific, credible" threats, Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano has said.

The system, which was unveiled by Napolitano on Wednesday, will list threats as "elevated" or "imminent" rather than using colors green (low threat), blue (guarded), yellow (elevated), orange (high), and red (severe), reports Fox News.

Napolitano said the federal government will provide as many unclassified details as possible about the threats to sectors of our economy, such as planes, trains, and ports.
