Visit the National Weather Service and Iowa Emergency Management Booth at the 2010 Iowa State Fair
A booth organized by and staffed by the National Weather Service and Iowa Emergency Management Association will be on display in the Hall of Flame under the grandstand at the Iowa State Fair. This year's booth will include posters on climate statistics over the past year, historical weather history, and case studies on different weather phenomena. Several handouts will be available including one for weather safety, a NWS website guide, a coverage map of the NOAA Weather Radio, and a cloud chart. Two flat screen TVs are going to be on display as well, one will feature current radar and satellite imagery, temperatures across Iowa, and the 7-day forecast for the State Fair. The second TV will consist of several images and videos from the NWS and Emergency Managers from different weather events over the past couple of years in Iowa. A Van De Graff generator, lightning tube, and current temperature gage will also be on display. There will also be a chance to enter to win a free NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio! And, as always, employees from the NWS and Emergency Management Association will be on hand to visit or answer your questions. There is going to be plenty to see at the State Fair, but be sure to make the NWS and IEMA booth one of your stops. We look forward to seeing you!
