|Showing the kids how they change the computer screen to add information.|
|Meeting one of the local Meteorologist. This office is one of five that covers the state of Missouri and is manned 24 hours a day. Their forecast go out to airports, radio/TV stations, to companies needing information due to their business.|
In addition to the tour the children saw several videos of various storms and learned some safety precautions that we can take in the event we are ever in that situation. For example, during a tornado if caught outside the worst thing to do is run for cover under an overpass. The overpass acts like a wind tunnel and throws debris up into the rafters of the overpass which is where most people like to try and hide. While occasionally you might hear of someone surviving there it is not advisable as more are killed and the news doesn't report those incidents.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers!!! Enjoy this time with your family
