Do you look to the skies on a stormy weather day and wonder whether it will turn severe? Or question what actions you should take to protect yourself & family/friend if it does?
Join Otter Tail County’s Emergency Management Director and the Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service in an exploration of features associated with severe weather – from storm clouds to tornadoes – and indicators you can look for to determine whether you will need to take action.
During this interactive workshop, you will learn more about:
- Tools you can use to plan your day.
- Features of severe weather you may encounter.
- How to identify the strength and direction of a storm, the safety of your location, and your response options.
- Conditions leading up to the June 22, 1919 tornadoes that struck the Fergus Falls area – and how we would respond today, using the June 17, 2010 Otter Tail County & Wadena tornadoes as reference.
