April 16, 2018

CANWARN is the eyes and ears of Environment Canada. It is a volunteer group, made up of people of all ages, who spot and report severe weather. Environment Canada’s meteorologists utilize a variety of tools to detect and track severe thunderstorm activity such as weather radar, satellites and a lightning detection network. However, these systems cannot provide meteorologists a sense of what’s actually happening on the ground. CANWARN spotters can report important information on the size of any hail or damage from the storm. This critical information is an integral part of Environment Canada’s Severe Weather Watch and Warning program.

Become a CANWARN Storm Spotter. The training is free and can help enhance the safety of people in Huron County.

 FREE training session will take place:

Wednesday April 25, 2018 – 7:00 to 9:30pm
Central Huron Municipal Building
23 Albert Street, Clinton, ON
