PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Right now, we get tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warning alerts sent to our phones, but soon you could also get a destructive weather alert. The National Weather Service is adding a damage threat tag to its severe thunderstorm warnings.

The damage threat will come in three categories — destructive, considerable and base.
