Missouri is known for its dangerous weather ranging from tornadoes, to extreme flooding, and even winter storms. It’s important for Missourians to know about weather safety since we have the extremes. The Severe Weather Awareness Expo at the Battlefield Mall is to inform the community on how to keep their families safe before and after severe weather hits.
NWS Springfield along with other local partner agencies and media outlets will be there to educate the community on severe weather. There will be fun interactive activities and educational material for everyone. We will have our tornado simulation machine on display. There will be meteorologists there to answer your questions and even help you program your NOAA weather radio.
Also trained spotters and volunteers from Southwest Missouri Regional Skywarn will be on hand as well to answer any questions you might have about getting involved with weather spotting via amateur radio. We hope to see you there.
