Do you want to become a storm spotter?
The 2012 CanWarn training session has been announced for the City of Hamilton and surrounding area.
Each year Environment Canada trains Ham Radio operators and other interested people to spot and report severe weather. They learn about the structure of storms, types of clouds, types of reportable weather events to watch for and what the department's severe weather watches and warnings mean.
The training event will be held on Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m until about noon, in the Nash Auditorium, Wilcox Building, at Chedoke Hospital, 565 Sanatorium Rd., Hamilton.
Admittance and parking are free.
