Attention: Calling all ‘stormchasers’

Talking about the weather last year was more than an idle pastime. It was often a matter of life and death.
The local branch of the National Weather Service is hoping to allay public fears in 2008 by strengthening its corps of storm spotters in our area through training classes that are part of the agency’s current weather preparedness campaign.
So if you want to be better informed on bad weather precautions and safety alerts, attending the annual program set for Feb. 26 in Waxahachie (see front page story) is the ticket for you.
The 2008 program will emphasize three fundamental concepts for severe weather events: observing, reporting and safety. The program will discuss thunderstorm formation, severe weather production and features associated with severe storms. The presentation will also review tornado formation and behavior and safety when thunderstorms threaten. The program will discuss spotter operations and recommended procedures when spotting. The two-hour presentation will be in multimedia format, featuring numerous pictures of storms and nearly 25 minutes of storm video clips.
We encourage citizens to get involved in this crucial training session. A weather-wise Ellis County is a safer Ellis County.
