Russell/Ellsworth County Emergency Management invites you to attend the presentation of the National Weather Service “Storm Fury On The Plains” Weather Spotter Training on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 at 6:30 P.M. at the Dream Theater in Russell or on Wednesday March 27, 2019 at 6:30 P.M. at Ellsworth Junior/Senior High PAC in Ellsworth.
Meteorologists from the National Weather Service office in Wichita have partnered with the local Emergency Management office and will be presenting information that will help prepare storm spotters and weather enthusiasts for the upcoming storm season. National Weather Service staff will provide an in depth weather presentation that will engage the audience by teaching them about the different types of storms, the individual storm features that help a person to recognize a storms potential severity, how to report hazardous weather, and severe weather safety.
The presentations are hosted by local county Emergency Management agencies and typically last up to two hours. They are open to anyone that has an interest in weather. There are no fees to attend, you do not have to register, and you do not have to sign up to be a spotter. So, if you are interested in learning more about severe thunderstorms and their hazards, please take the time to come out and join us for a very interesting and enjoyable evening.
