It seems that the question is alluding to the early warning systems associated with hurricanes. Remember that weather agencies will try and predict the path of a hurricane and the intensity of it. This will then be announced on news channels and the radio to warn people, probably a few days in advance. Warning sirens are sounded often a few hours before a hurricane is predicted to hit inland.

Hope this helps. Though this is a generic overview, please use this as a template for any of the case studies you have been learning as part of your GCSE. Maybe you have learnt about Hurricane Katrina? Remember that hurricanes, typhoons and cyclones are the same thing, but are called different names across the world.
