About this Event

In most years, thunderstorms, tornadoes and lightning cause hundreds of injuries and deaths and billions in property and crop damages. To obtain critical weather information, the National Weather Service (NWS) established SKYWARN® with partner organizations. SKYWARN® is a volunteer program with between 350,000 and 400,000 trained severe weather spotters. These volunteers help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to the National Weather Service.

NWS encourages anyone with an interest in public service to join the SKYWARN® program. Training is free and typically lasts about 2 hours. You'll learn:

◾Basics of thunderstorm development

◾Fundamentals of storm structure

◾Identifying potential severe weather features

◾Information to report

◾How to report information

◾Basic severe weather safety
