WASHINGTON - US Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Monday that he would announce a new alert system to more accurately warn the public about terrorism risks.

The National Terrorism Advisory System is triggered by specific, credible information on a possible threat. The NTAS in 2011 replaced a color-coded alert system, but Johnson said more changes were needed.

"We need a system that adequately informs the public about what we are seeing," Johnson said.
