Official Weather Spotters
Posted on May 21, 2016
Thanks to the great people at WYMT-TV and NOAA from the Jackson Weather office for providing this great service for our community.
Stephanie, myself and a handful of people turned up at the back of the WYMT-TV station to learn how to spot tornado’s and how to report them to NOAA and the television station. We were given a quiz afterwards and a bunch of phone numbers, email address of weather anchors and NOAA Weather Radio.
Of course there was some paper work to sign but nothing to long drawn out.
We received our certificates and some tokens to take home with us, after the important stuff was out of the way, we took a tour of the station and returned to the sports studio to watch a movie and eat lunch.
All in all it was a great experience.
I have some photos to share because for some reason my tremors were really acting up today which made my videos suffer. I took screenshots off of the video to share here.
The staff was great and we had a lot of fun, Stephanie and I are now certifed weather spotters for Perry County, Kentucky.
