Hazard status is either NEW or UPDATED as reported by the subject matter expert.

Hazards in the middle of the Pacific or Atlantic oceans may be difficult to judge overview location due to broad expanse of those regions.

PDC's Regional Report presents data from the U.S. Geological Survey, various services of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other respected national, regional and global agencies in an easy to understand "snapshot" of a given time and geographical area.

The Regional Report is compiled automatically and a link to it is automatically generated and posted to social networks so anyone can obtain the same basic information that is shared among disaster management professionals right away, with updates triggered by changes in the available data feeds.
The message/advisory from the subject matter expert is often a text message and easily readable but can also be in XML or other form difficult for humans to read and understand.

It is included here as a courtesy to visitors to view the raw data as it was delivered by the subject matter experts and received by the PDC for automated processing.
