Class teaches how to spot severe storms


Anyone interested in becoming a trained volunteer weather spotter for the National Weather Service is invited to attend a SKYWARN spotter training class from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 504 N. Walnut St., Seymour.

SKYWARN spotters coordinate with local emergency management officials and send reports of weather-based phenomena.

The class is for first responders and the public who want to learn how severe thunderstorms and tornadoes form, what to look for in the sky and other severe weather-related information.

Those attending the class are asked to park in the rear of the church.

The class is sponsored by Jackson County Emergency Management.
