BeachFest in Conway Nov 9th

From the ILM WCM

 Good afternoon!

 

I hope to see some of you at the BeachFest in Conway this Saturday. I plan on bringing the model tornado with me, along with some handouts. I also have a limited number of NWS patches and if there are any HAM-boaters I have a few NOAA Marine Observer pins to give away.

 

Thanks,

-Steve

TS Karen and Skywarn Training announcement

From the ILM WCM

Hello!

Just a quick note about TS Karen.... if she tracks farther west then the impacts from rainfall and the potential for tornadoes will be less. If the track is anywhere from Charlotte to the coast then rainfall would be much higher. In addition, a track farther east would also likely increase the potential for tornadoes. Definitely worth keeping an eye on through early next week.

 

Lastly, Marion County Emergency Management and the NWS will host Skywarn training at Marion Fire Station #2 (1942 Senator Gasque Rd. Marion, SC) on Tuesday Oct 29th from 10-1130 am EDT. Please note: this training may need to be rescheduled if the governement shutdown is not resolved by the 29th.

 

Thanks,

-Steve
