New Online Storm Report Form Now Available
A new online storm report form is now available for users of our website, including trained spotters. You can access the form by clicking the Submit Storm Report link under Current Hazards on the left hand menu of the page.
The link will take you to the reporting form for the Chicago National Weather Service. Simply fill in the appropriate dialog boxes with the proper information; date, time (be sure to select the correct time zone), location of the event, select the event from the list and lastly add any additional details you think we should know in the "Additional Details" box. Including your contact information is voluntary. Finally, click "Review Report" at the bottom of the form. A new page will appear allowing you to review the information you have entered. Click "Submit Report" after reviewing your information. When you submit your report, it will immediately alarm on computers in the NWS office.
This new on-line reporting form is replacing the eSpotter system, which is being discontinued. All spotters who were in eSpotter, should immediately start using this on-line reporting form.
