Every year, the National Weather Service (NWS) in Topeka presents weather safety and information talks which are open
to the general public. Presentations are typically around 90 minutes long, and are given by a meteorologist from our
office. The 2018 show will focus on severe storm safety, preparedness, and awareness. Storm structure and accurate
identification of important cloud features associated with supercell and squall line thunderstorms are also touched on.


While attending a talk we provide you with our contact information. We encourage everyone to call the NWS once it is
safe to do so to pass along critical information about any severe weather you experience. We may also call you at your
home after the severe weather has passed to inquire about possible damage or hail size.


Additional valuable online spotter training videos can be fund via the NWS Norman website:
