Lightning and #AltusOK

Two workers from the National Severe Storms Laboratory were in the Altus area recently working on new lightning sensors for the lightning network, recently.

This allows emergency managers in the area to see where lightning is, where it is not, and where it's heading.

In time, a number of new stations in Jackson and Greer County will augment the current system in place.  This may allow for even greater detail for what may be available to your public safety partners.
