Yes, you can do this by adding multiple State Triggers in the Notification Triggers tab for the sensor in question. One can be an alert sent out when the sensor is at Warning, the other is sent when the sensor is at Error.

You can set these Warning and Error thresholds on the channel itself. Click on the channel and in the channel settings window select the option to Enable Alerting based on Limits. Here you can put in 10% for the Lower Warning, and 5% for the Lower Error.

Both of these together will accomplish what you're trying to do.
