“The class will help residents be the eyes and ears of the NWS for severe weather in the area,” explained Gwinnett Emergency Management Director Greg Swanson. “This informative class will focus on how to spot dangerous weather, particularly tornadoes and severe thunderstorm conditions.”
Participants will learn what a severe storm is, the structure of a severe storm, how it develops and how to inform the NWS of severe weather, Swanson added.
The storm spotter class, which will be taught by NWS meteorologist David Nadler, will be held at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center auditorium, 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville, at 7 p.m.
The public is invited to attend, pre-registration is required. To reserve your spot, call 770-513-5600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
