    On Monday, March 17, the nation's threat level was raised from elevated risk ("yellow") to high risk ("orange "), the second highest level of the Homeland Security Advisory System . The change was prompted by a belief on the part of the Department of Homeland Security that terrorists may attempt to attack U.S. and coalition targets worldwide in the event of hostilities with Iraq.

    The Department of Homeland Security is ta king measures across the country to raise preparedness to their highest levels. This includes increased security at U.S. borders and in the transportation, oil and food industries, as well as the mobilization of response and recovery teams across the nation.

    At this time, public health officials are urged to be fully prepared to respond to terrorist attacks.
