ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – Louisiana State University Alexandria will host a Skywarn class.

Members of the Lake Charles office of the NWS will be on the LSUA campus on Monday, January 13 to hold the class.  It will be in the Coughlin Hall Auditorium at 1:00pm. 

Topics covered in the class include: background information on the NWS, weather observations, NWS communication of severe weather, severe weather definitions and safety tips, local tornado climatology, visual observations of possible tornado/severe storms, tornado look-a-likes and how to report severe weather to the NWS.

The class will last an hour and is free and open to the public.
