There is a high risk for event(s) perceived as crisis, upheaval, or disaster especially between October 12-19. Casualty estimates are between 6 and 60*.
There is an elevated risk for event(s) perceived as violent protests or terrorist activity especially between October 15-22. A small number of casualties are possible*.
Because these signals overlap, they may be part of a single event or set of events, such as a violent-upheaval.
Significant natural events may occur during this period. If so, the types most associated with the current pattern are tornadoes (cyclones) and earthquakes.
*Estimated casualties are provided to give a sense of scale of expected impact to U.S. society. If the event(s) occur outside of the United States, loss of life and/or property could be substantially greater. An event of equivalent impact without fatalities is also possible (e.g. market failure).
