I have recently got an alert text message on my phone from my local authorities in Vietnam:
(a) Typhoon number 16 (Tembin) can affect Ho Chi Minh city, people should follow to have prevention.
Although I'm not a native speaker, it kind of sounds weird to me. The above bold words are the ones which I am going to make changes as follow:
(b) Typhoon number 16 (Tembin) can affect Ho Chi Minh city, everyone should check media to ensure safety.
Do you think sentence (a) sounds natural?
If not, does my sentence (b) sounds fine so that I can make suggestion to the authority?
