Weather Safety from @NWSNorman coming to #AltusOK #Skywarn #WRN

The National Weather Service Office in Norman is presenting Skywarn information to area residents February 9 at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the City of Altus City Hall, according to area emergency management officials.

The training is free.  The public is encouraged to attend, according to Steve Grayson, KE5BPL, the Altus Skywarn Association president.

"This is NOT a storm chaser program," said Wayne Cain, Jackson County Emergency Management director.  "This is information for the public to learn what to report, how to report it, and to whom to report it."

To volunteer as a “community storm spotter” area residents should visit http://bit.ly/1QxDhF9 to obtain additional information, according to Lloyd Colston, City of Altus Emergency Management director.
