Assess "wtype_meteoalarm" in alerts

Dear community / WUnderground API Developers,

I love your API and am using it for a couple of personal projects. Now I would like to evaluate the attribute "wtype_meteoalarm" (or "wtype_meteoalarm_name") in the alerts to determine what kind of alert we have (and display symbols etc...). However, contrary to "type" I can not find any documentation on the possible values for "wtype_meteoalarm". Can you help me out with a list of all possible values (note I need this for European cities in case it makes a difference)...

Many thanks in advance!
Christian

Dear WU API Team,

This forum is not very helpful if no one replies... This documentation should be easily available in your sources somewhere. Can you please look into this?

Many thanks!

Hej,
Based on the names of the images on meteoalarm.eu, I suspect the values are as follows:
1: Wind
2: Snow/Ice/Freezing
3: Thunderstorms
4: Fog
5: Heat
6: Cold
7: Coastal threaths
8: Wildfires
9: Avalanches
10: Rain
12: Flood
13: Flood and rain

For some reason 11 seems to be missing...
