SKYWARN TRAINING - MARCH 13, 2014
The La Porte Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will host a Skywarn training class on Thursday, March 13th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at the La Porte Police Department building, located at 3001 N 23rd Street in La Porte.
Skywarn is a group of trained volunteers that watch the skies during severe weather and relay reports back to local Emergency Management Officials and/or the National Weather Service (NWS). These volunteers provide valuable information to the NWS to improve the warning program which could save lives and prevent property damage in your community.
