TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Class was in session Monday night in Vigo County for people who wanted to learn how to spot severe weather.
The National Weather Service held a special course called "Sky Warn Storm Spotter Training."
Spotters learned about cloud and radar patterns.
They also learned the important things to look for so they could stay safe when severe weather is approaching.
Members of the NWS say these spotters are a vital part of tracking severe conditions.
"Our storm spotters provide us that information...about what's taking place down here on the ground and that's key information that we can then tie to what we see on the radar," Dave Tucek, from the NWS said.
