Severe weather season is approaching, and what better way to prepare than by attending a storm spotter class.
The Skywarn storm spotter training program will be Tuesday, March 27, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Grenada EOC building on Van Dorn Street.
The National Weather Service in Jackson and the Grenada County Emergency Management Agency are conducting the event.
“This training tells the public what to expect in case of a tornado, severe thunderstorm and other occurance,” said Grenada County MEMA Director Trebia Rodgers. “The training will be conducted by a metrologist with the NWS.”
Rodgers said the program goes further in discussing thunderstorm formation, severe weather production, and features associated with severe storms; storm observing, reporting procedures, and safety.
“The program is free and open to the public,” Rodgers said.
