PSA Storm Watchers

Marketplace has some great pictures and information on Tuesday's night storm in the valley. We thank him for giving the people of the north some information on a storm spotters training up the road in Wabeno.

"By the way: For those interested, storm spotter training sessions will be held at the Wautoma Fire Department Thursday at 6 p.m. and at the Wabeno Town Hall Wednesday, May 12 at 6:30 p.m."

For information, Marketplace has the link.

I would but I'm so deep in the Nicolet that I won't see a storm coming until it's too late. Maybe I will go, what do i have to lose? By the way, hope lightning doesn't strike the same place twice.

Remember a couple years ago when Shawano-Menominee-Langlade-Oconto Counties were hit on June 7th, 2007.

"A long-track tornado touched down at 4:31 pm east of Mattoon in Shawano County and continued northeast to the Oconto-Marinette County line. The tornado was on the ground for at least 40 miles, and was over 1/2 mile wide at times. Over 14000 acres of trees were snapped or flattened and many dozens of buildings were damaged or destroyed. The twister was rated an EF3 on the Enhanced Fujita scale, with estimated winds of 140 to 160 mph. Damage by this tornado alone exceeded $15 million (property and timber)."
