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.  The training is free, you don't need to register, and everyone is welcome to attend.
