Alert Title Goes Here

This would be a weather alert or any kind of alert. It’s hidden by default. To enable just remove the .hide class. The .alert-news is the default style set here, however if it’s a more severe message you can change “.alert-news” to “.alert-warning” and it updates the style accordingly.
