Free Storm Spotter Training Class In Southeast Minnesota
Free Storm Spotter Training Class Happening March 29th in Southeast Minnesota
Years ago, when I was a student at Iowa State University, I used to sneak into a meteorology class any time they were talking about tornadoes. I know they are dangerous, and cause horrible destruction, and my mom would hate it if I was out there in the middle of a storm, but at some point, I have to check this off my list.
If you've always wanted the opportunity to be a storm spotter, your chance is happening soon in Southeast Minnesota. According to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, there is a Storm Spotter Training class happening Wednesday, March 29th, 2023 from 6:30 pm until 8:30 pm at the Empire Event Center at 1517 16th Street SW in Rochester.
