Poorly designed weather alerts 07 Sep 2005

Recent events have shown us how important it is to properly alert people to dangerous weather conditions. Yet take a look at this severe weather alert as it was posted last week at MyWay.com. Talk about an intimidating block of information. It’s all caps, the most important information is buried in the middle, and there’s no visual emphasis anywhere. Where’s the map showing the areas affected? Why isn’t there a clear description of the threat and its severity right at the top? It’s a shame when information that clearly warrants good design is presented in such a cloudy way.
