Good Afternoon Spotters,
We wanted to send a quick update on the Spotter Program at our office!
For those of you who have not taken the spotter training in a while and feel you may have forgotten some of the aspects of the training, we have uploaded a video to our YouTube page which serves as a shorter refresher: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVF3_8nRkP4&t=7s
We have created a new private Facebook Group (NWS Columbia SKYWARN) for NWS Columbia Spotters to submit reports! In the coming days, we will send out invites to the email list that we have so be on the lookout for it! We hope that this will enable us to quickly receive trustworthy reports from the NWS Columbia Spotter community.
Thank you for all that you do! If there are any questions, please reach out to me, Chris Landolfi (firstname.lastname@example.org)
