NOAA Webinar: Talking Tornadoes

May 15, 2020 @ 11:00 am

Sean Waugh, NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory
Sponsored by: NOAA

With Sean Waugh, NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Oklahoma Tornadoes occur all over the world and can be among some of the most damaging and destructive natural disasters. Our mission at the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory is to improve our understanding of tornadoes and all aspects of severe weather. This helps forecasters at the NOAA National Weather Service better predict hazardous weather and issue forecasts, watches and warnings to save lives and reduce property damage. It takes a special team of dedicated researchers and a variety of instrumented vehicles designed just for the job! Talk with a real-life Tornado Scientist, see first hand some of the tools they use to safely study tornadoes, and get your questions answered about the science behind the storm! The webinar will last about 45-60 minutes with moderated questions and answers throughout. This webinar will be recorded and posted afterward. (Grades 2-6 but all ages will enjoy.
