Along with the clouds, Door County residents can find an opportunity to serve the community in the sky. The Door County Emergency Management and Communications Department will host storm spotter training next month to help the National Weather Service improve their updates regarding meteorological events. Storm spotters help locate incoming storms as well as keep track of wind damage, hail size, and flash flood. Director Dan Kane says it is important to have a lot of volunteers when it comes to spotting storms.
The storm spotting training will take place at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay on May 8th beginning at 6 p.m. Trained storm spotters are recommended to go through the 90-minute session at least once every two to three years.
