Alerts on Heat Disasters.

Heat waves kill more people than floods, tornadoes and hurricanes together. Still, unlike hurricanes, they don’t have warning categories. That may change if California approves a first-in-the-nation warning system to help Californians be alert and prepared to deal with high heat events. Policy makers who are spearheading the legislation talk about it.
