Emergency Alert    12:45 PM
Flash Flood Warning this area til 12:45 PM
MST. Avoid flood areas. Check local media. –
NWS

We received the alert at 12:53, 8 minutes after it expired.

What is the reason for the tardiness, is it the NWS system, or the carrier.

=================================

Issues:
1) Does “this area” refer to our place in Bisbee or the place that we are on the highway?
2) Note that we received the alert expired 8 minutes after it expired.
Should the alert been important to us we wouldn’t have needed the alert, we would already have been flooded.

=================================

We are all acquainted with the signs that display the distance. In Las Vegas, they now have electronic boards that display the estimated time instead of the distance. The correctness of the time is dependent on the traffic engineers.
