Severe Thunderstorm Warning. Tornado Warning. Significant Weather Advisory. Winter Storm Watch. These are just a few of the weather messages that are conveyed by The National Weather Service to inform the public of dangerous weather. But how much does the public truly understand about this messaging. Do they know what a significant weather advisory is? What about where to shelter if a tornado warning is issued? On Episode 36 of Tornado Talk, we are taking it to the streets! We ask members of the public these very questions and more! We also have a panel of experts who have worked many years to make sure the public gets the message. They offer their expertise on the challenges of communicating severe weather information to the public and how we can improve! Episode 36 is ON!
