Want to become a storm spotter?

Here at the Ennis Daily News, we want all of our readers and the rest of the community to stay safe as the storm season approaches.
While we cannot alter the path of these storms, we can pay attention and know what to do in case of a weather-related emergency.
Many storms with hail, wind, tornadoes and flooding occurred during last year’s storm season. These storms caused large amounts of damage in property and many casualties. This year, with the help of the National Weather Service and Ellis County Emergency Management, people will become more aware of storms and what to do during them.
On March 3, The National Weather Service and Ellis County Emergency Management will host a severe weather program called “Skywarn.” It will begin at 7 p.m. and end at 9 p.m. The program will be held at the Midlothian Conference Center, and anyone in the county who wishes to learn more about severe weather and possibly become part of the weather-warning system is invited to attend.
At the program, thunderstorm formation and features of severe storms will be discussed. A presentation will also be given about tornadoes. Information about storm spotting and storm safety will also be given. Storm spotting is a great way for residents to help inform the rest of the community about threatening storms that may be approaching.
This is a great opportunity for residents of Ellis County to educate themselves about storm safety. Ennis residents have always been great about helping their fellow community members, and becoming a storm spotter will only further benefit our county and city. We encourage everyone to attend “Skywarn” and learn how to be safe and aware when severe weather hits.
