The seminar, led by meteorologists from the NWS Forecast Office in Wilmington, Ohio, will provide specialized training to citizens, public safety officers and emergency management personnel on how to spot, report and prepare for tornadoes and other severe spring weather conditions in Franklin County.
NWS depends in part on information from citizens trained to spot and report tornadoes and other severe weather events to help keep the community informed and safe with accurate reports and predictions of dangerous weather.
