BANGOR – The national weather service is providing storm spotter training and advising what to look for.
Meteorologists with the NWS can only predict atmospheric conditions at a certain elevation, having eyes on the ground alerts the Caribou based office to possible tornadoes, funnel clouds, and other inclement conditions.
“That the biggest thing about the program is, is that they are going to be telling us about the damages from it what sized hail they received and the measurables from it. What kind of trees come down, branches come down. Because we can tell how significant the storm damage that it is causing. That’s the most important thing.” Donald Dumont, Meteorologist
Dumont says that the more people who receive training in a town or city, the more prepared that community will be for bad weather.
