Area residents can find out March 21, as the National Weather Service will present its annual Skywarn class at 7 p.m. at the City Council Chambers ó located at 307 E. Fourth St.
The class will include information on tracking and classifying storms and various weather conditions, but itís not limited to emergency management officials and storm chasers.
