New Terror Threat Alerts

The color-coded terrorism threat levels created after September 11th are being retired and replaced with the new National Terrorism Advisory System. Terror alerts from the Department of Homeland Security will now just have two warning levels: "Imminent" and "Elevated."

"Imminent" warns of a credible, specific, and impending terrorist threat against the United States, while "Elevated" warns of a credible terrorist threat.

The new alerts go in effect next week and will provide a summary of the potential threat, information about actions being taken to ensure public safety, and recommendations for dealing with the threat.
