2017 Craighead County Severe Weather Seminar

This year the 2017 Severe Weather Seminar will be held March 11th at St. Bernards Auditorium.
505 E Washington Jonesboro, Arkansas starting at 9 am.
The effects of severe weather are felt every year by many Americans. To obtain critical weather information, NOAA's National Weather Service (NWS), part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, established SKYWARN® with partner organizations. SKYWARN® is a volunteer program with nearly 290,000 trained severe weather spotters. These volunteers help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to the National Weather Service.
The main responsibility of a SKYWARN® spotter is to identify and describe severe local storms. In the average year, 10,000 severe thunderstorms, 5,000 floods and more than 1,000 tornadoes occur across the United States.

Thank you for your interest in Craighead County Skywarn. We are a group of very dedicated men and woman. We meet twice a month in different parts of our county. On the first Saturday of every month we have a business meeting. On the third Saturday we have a training meeting.
We ask that our members participate in our activities. Training is highly encouraged and our members often seek extra training in emergency management. We often train with the Craighead County Office of Emergency Management. We report all our severe weather findings to their office and they forward our reports to the National Weather Service-Memphis.
