Storm Spotter Training in New Hampton
March 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The National Weather Service will be holding a SKYWARN Severe Weather Spotter Training in New Hampton on Tuesday, March 21st starting at 6:30 pm. The training will be held at the New Hampton Rescue Building located at 260 E. Prospect St.
The class will last around 2 hours and includes a multimedia presentation. Training is intended for storm spotters or potential storm spotters, but is open to the public and free of charge. A review of recent and past severe weather will be included.
The NWS relies heavily on actual storm reports from “spotters”, which can include sheriff’s departments, local emergency management officials, police and fire departments, amateur radio operators, or anyone else that has attended one of these classes. These reports can prompt warnings that save lives – a proven fact we’ve seen many times in our region.
Pre-registration is not needed.
