Storm spotter training class coming to Emporia Tuesday

Spring officially comes later this week, and with spring comes severe weather. KVOE is ready for this season's thunderstorms, and you can be too, with Tuesday's spotter training session.


The National Weather Service has been holding these sessions across Kansas the past few weeks. Lyon County's training session is Tuesday at 7pm at the Bowyer Community Building. Emergency Management Coordinator Rick Frevert says Lyon County Emergency Management will pass out weather radios. Frevert recommends everyone come to the class.

This comes after Severe Weather Awareness Week and the statewide tornado drill earlier this month. This week is Flood Safety Awareness Week. Frevert says Lyon County uses the latest technology to alert the public, and that various law enforcement and city officials work as a team to stay on top of severe weather events. This team, of course, includes KVOE.
