Skywarn is a program sponsored by your National Weather Service Office in conjunction with your local Emergency Management Organization. It is a group of trained volunteers that watch the skies during severe weather and relay reports back to you local Emergency Management Official and/or the National Weather Service (NWS). These volunteers provide valuable information to the NWS to improve the warning program which could save lives and prevent property damage in your community.
Each Spring season, the National Weather Service will hold training sessions in several East Texas Counites. Below is the schedule for Spring 2007. Lukin will soon be added.
