Flagler County Emergency Management and the National Weather Service will host a free Skywarn Storm Spotter webinar class at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 16, at the county’s Emergency Services Building.
Angie Enyedi, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, will teach the class. It will provide attendees with the knowledge to become a part of a nationwide network of volunteers who support local emergency management and the National Weather Service by recognizing and reporting severe weather.
“It is so important for our community to have well-trained volunteers, because it helps improve weather reports and allows us to better prepare and protect our community,” said Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord. “The class takes less than two hours to complete.”
Students will learn about storm formation and structure, and how to identify and report severe weather.
Registration is required, and can be done by visiting www.FlaglerCounty.gov/emergency and selecting Volunteering and Training from the menu and go to the Skywarn link, or by calling 386-313-4200 during normal business hours.
