“Severe Weather can happen at any time across this area.” NWS official Scott Cordero said. “That is why it is so important to have these guys as our eyes and ears.”
The class covered many things including definitions on what makes severe weather and live local pictures and video from past severe weather. One of the most important things discussed was when and who to call in case you are encountering severe weather. The NWS says you do not have to be a certified weather spotter in order to relay in information which may be of use to their offices.
“Those reporting severe weather and hazardous conditions should call their local law enforcement office.” Cordero said. “They will relay the information all at once to us.”
