PRESS RELEASE:

ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - Alachua County Emergency Management is launching
a new Skywarn Spotter Program. Skywarn Spotters are individuals who

severe weather conditions before severe weather strikes. Weather
Spotters act as the eyes and ears of the National Weather Service and
local Emergency Management by helping verify weather conditions that
are indicated on radar.

Participants will learn about the atmospheric conditions that occur
before severe weather strikes.  They will also learn what to report,
when to report, and correct reporting procedures when calling in
severe weather events to the local National Weather Office.

The first organizational meeting will be on Thursday, July 31 at 7
