Report extreme weather by sending in photos and observations.
Every year there are 10,000 severe thunderstorms, 5,000 floods and more than 1,000 tornadoes on average in the US, threatening lives and property. Severe weather impacts everyone in some way, so in order to keep communities safe NOAA’s National Weather Service established SKYWARN. This program allows volunteers to provide timely and accurate reports of severe weather, and already enlists almost 300,000 trained weather spotters. By volunteering with SKYWARN you contribute to better storm warnings which could save lives and money. Efforts are mostly focused on reports from individuals of wind gusts, hail size, rainfall, and cloud formations that could signal a developing tornado. The National Weather Service often conducts training across the US, so keep an eye out for the opportunity to be involved in this exciting project.
