KATU: State Department unveiling new international travel advisories

KATU: State Department unveiling new international travel advisories. “The previous system was a bit antiquated, a list of alerts and warnings, and the State Department saw potential for a better system. Now, instead of warnings if something has happened in a specific place, the State Department’s new website will have advisories for every one of the nearly 200 countries on Earth, with maps and specifics that are accessible on mobile devices and are quicker to access and easier to interpret. Part of that overhaul is a new four-tiered system, Level 1 through 4, for each country, or even for specific regions of a country.” The site is expected to come online in mid-January.
