Storm Alert Xtreme 2012!

| November 12, 2012 @ 8:16 am

Another packed house for our annual storm spotter training at the BJCC… a special thanks to everyone who attended Saturday.

Each session video is below. There is a tad of audio noise due to some interference from our wireless mic, but it isn’t too bothersome hopefully. A special thanks to ABC 33/40 Skywatcher John Brown for bringing in his equipment so the event could be streamed live and recorded. These recordings are from the uStream channel we used to live stream the event. The camera is focused on the big screen so you can see the graphics easily.

INTRO SESSION

I shared an update on the ABC 33/40 Skywatcher program, and some information about the April 27, 2011 generational tornado outbreak, and social media.
