Skywarn Storm Spotter Training


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

We have severe weather events year-round in Virginia, but you can help spot them and prepare yourself when they arrive.

The Skywarn Storm Spotter Training is provided by the Blacksburg National Weather Service. They will provide a presentation called "Preparing for Weather Hazards in the New River Valley". This presentation will review hazardous weather events that impact the NRV and how one can prepare to be more responsive, ready, and resilient to these hazards.

We will explore how excessive heat, tornadoes, damaging thunderstorm winds, large hail, winter storms, dangerous wind chills, and the remains of tropical systems can result in the loss of life and property in our area.

#BeHokieReady for these weather events by joining us for this important training!
