Among the most frequent hazards in daily life are severe weather events.
These phenomena have a short or medium time range, but they are very powerful and
produce significant damage. Operational meteorology tries to foresee these
phenomena as long as possible prior to their appearance, but sometimes there are
communication disturbances in distribution of the meteorological information toward
the competent authorities and the population. The goal of this paper is to present some
forecast or communication errors concerning some severe weather events that
occurred in the Western part of Romania between 2005 and 2017.
