Severe Weather Informational Meeting In St Paul For Hmong Community Tuesday, March 26 At 6:00 P.M.

A meeting on severe weather information will be provided Tuesday, March 26 at 6:00 p.m. in St. Paul, geared for the Hmong community.  This is part of a weather safety training program serving the Hmong community launched in January 2013.  It educates newer Hmong immigrants about winter weather safety, severe weather safety, and preparation for the various risks associated with Minnesota's extreme climate. Members of the St Paul Department of Emergency Management, Ramsey County Emergency Management and Homeland Security, and other individuals will inform participants about severe weather safety and give an overview of Skywarn, which is a program that shows how to watch for severe weather. People will be able to sign up to attend a Skywarn class at a later date.  The hope is to recruit, train and certify members of this under-represented community to become part ofthe network of trained severe weather storm spotters. The session takes place at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26 at Lao Family Community's Saint Paul location at 320 University Avenue West. The event is free and open to the public.
