Posted Date: 4/16/2014

In conjunction with the National Weather Service, the City of Williamsburg is hosting Advanced SKYWARN Training Wednesday, May 7, 2014, at 6 p.m. at the Williamsburg Regional Library (515 Scotland St). The class is free of charge and lasts approximately 2-1/2 hours, with all materials provided.

SKYWARN is a volunteer program with nearly 290,000 trained severe weather spotters. These volunteers help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to the National Weather Service. The main responsibility of a SKYWARN spotter is to identify and describe severe local storms. 

Residents interested in attending or learning more about the training should contact Jim Tuttle, SKYWARN District 3 Manager, at tuttleje@gmail.com or 757-229-7313 and press "#" when prompted. Information about the SKYWARN program is available online.
