Apple Creek, Ohio – March 23rd, 2017 6:00PM-8:00PM
Ohio’s Severe Weather Awareness Week is the week of March 19th – 25th. Thunderstorms affect Ohio the most during the spring and summer months. Storms can produce heavy rainfall, flash flooding, damaging winds, hail and tornadoes. To keep our citizens aware of these hazards, there will be a statewide tornado drill on Wednesday March 22nd at 9:50am. Please be aware that this is only a test.
On Thursday, March 23rd at 6:00PM – 8:00PM, the Wayne County Emergency Management Agency is sponsoring a free Skywarn Spotter’s course at the Apple Creek Fire Department located at 3400 Apple Creek Rd, Apple Creek, OH 44606. Check in starts at 5:00pm at the Fire Department and the class is from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.
Skywarn spotters are a vital part of the National Weather Service warning system. To become a spotter, attendance at a storm spotter class is required. Pre-registration for the class is required. You may register by calling the Wayne County EMA at (330) 262-9817 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating is limited. Participants ages 13 and older will be issued a Skywarn Spotter ID number and card. We hope to see you there!
