The National Weather Service and Osage County Emergency Management will present a severe weather safety and information talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 12, 2020, at Carbondale City Hall, 234 Main St., Carbondale, Kan.

Every year, the National Weather Service in Topeka presents severe weather safety and information talks which are open to the general public. Presentations are typically around 90 minutes long and given by a meteorologist from the Topeka NWS office, focusing on severe storm safety, preparedness, and accurate identification of storm features.

In addition to attending a talk, anyone interested in becoming a weather spotter is encouraged to complete an online training class focused on the basics of convective weather and storm structure. See www.weather.gov/top/spottertalks for more information about the NWS weather talks and spotter training.
