No More Color Coded Advisory System!
USA Today is reporting the the Homeland Security Advisory System, the color codes that seem to never change, will be phased out in the next 90 days.
The system premiered at orange, went down to yellow for a time, then went back up to orange in 2006 where it has remained. The changes in the system meant little to the average citizen so it rapidly became irrelevant. The new system seems to be a more location specific and may actually help authorities and traveler alike remain more vigilant.
