Severe storm spotting classes are going on across the region, as the turn to warmer weather approaches.

 

Todd Heitkamp, severe weather coordinator for the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls says there was a demonstration of the impact of severe weather last fall…

 

That storm generated damaging tornadoes across north east Nebraska, south east South Dakota and northwest Iowa.

 

Heitkamp says they continue to refine the wording they use in severe weather warnings…

 

Heitkamp says they also talk about the number of warnings that may be needed…

 

Heitkamp held a storm spotter training class last night in Yankton.
