Wanna be a weather spotter?

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- If you want to help Charleston County emergency officials warn the public about local weather changes, you can learn how to do just that this week.

The county will hold a free weather spotters class from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Charleston County Public Services Building, 4045 Bridgeview Drive in North Charleston.

The class is offered through the National Weather Service's SKYWARN program, which trains volunteers to report hail size, wind damage, flash flooding, tornadoes and other weather events.

Thursday's class is required to become a certified SKYWARN weather spotter through the NWS.

To register, call James Tarter, the county's Emergency Management Department training coordinator at (843) 202-7405 or email him at jtarter@charlestoncounty.org.

"Volunteers serve as the eyes and ears for the whole community," a news release from Charleston County said.
