Storm Spotter Training in Door County

Door County Emergency Management has announced that the National Weather Service will provide storm spotter training in Door County in 2019. The Skywarn Storm Spotter Program was created by the National Weather Service to aid them in their goal of getting real time updates about weather events. The updates can range in nature from wind damage, hail size, flash flooding, tornadoes, storm damage, and more. Storm Spotter volunteers create a vital link between what shows on radar and what is truly happening on the ground. Anyone is welcome to attend the training, even if you’re not interested in becoming a storm spotter. The typical training conducted by the weather service lasts about 90 minutes, there is no cost to attend and no registration is required. The session will be held at 6PM on Wednesday, May 8th at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay. The National Weather Service recommends that spotters train every two to three years to remain current.
