Why severe weather storm spotters are important

Besides everything else that I’m active in, I’m also a National Weather Service certified storm spotter. As EC of our local ARES group, my job is to keep our group properly trained and ready for when severe weather strikes. I had the opportunity last week to give an interview to the local television station about the role severe weather spotters play in protecting our community. The result is this video clip. Enjoy!

Edit (08/14/11): The tv station removed the video clip from their site, but you can still read a transcript by following the link.
