Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (EMERGENCY-11) Add flood category

    [ https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/EMERGENCY-11?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=37635#comment-37635 ] 

Norm Paulsen commented on EMERGENCY-11:

We use the category element as a multiple element as it is defined. So since my community has defined an EventCode List, we also define in that list every category that an eventCode could be applicable too. So any time an eventCode goes into a CAP-CP message, regardless of originator/issuer, the categories are filled out too. 

The way we promote this element is that if you are aware of Canada, and only interested in a specific category or two, go ahead and filter on it. New eventCodes that get added later would be categorized. This way you can keep up with all "met" alerts without having too update your filters everytime we update our eventCode list.

Flood just happens to be awkward in category. It also may be too specific a category where "Hyd" might be more broad based covering flood and other hydro meteorological events other than flood.

> Doug Allport: I'm proposing we give Flood its own category in the next version of CAP. We have CAP-CP event references that are not meteorological (E.g. Dam breach) and our national dam association is going to propose one or more for regular alerts associated with rapid changes to spillways associated with meeting electrical power demand. We have CAP users creating their own Flood category for the management of their event references.
