Thursday on Lubbock’s First News, James Nesmith of the Science Spectrum gave details on their upcoming Severe Weather Awareness Day event.

The free event will take place March 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will allow kids the chance to be involved in weather experiments, as well as for families to get information on how to be prepared for severe weather. There will also be live weather demonstrations with tornado and lightning simulators, weather instruments and a mobile Doppler radar. Nesmith said, “The National Weather Service will have a booth. They will actually be doing official storm spotter training, if you are interested in that, as well as general safety talks.” Get more information on these from the event webpage.

The awareness event will be hosted by the Student Chapter of the American Meteorological Society at Texas Tech University,  KCBD News Channel 11, the National Weather Service, and the Science Spectrum.

Standard OMNI and museum admission prices will apply.
