Storm Safe is heading to the plains for the last stretch of the school year. The next stop was Las Animas, which is out in Bent County.

Meteorologist Jessica Van Meter talked with about 40 5th graders about all of the severe weather we see here in Colorado and how to be safe when the weather takes a turn on the plains. 

The students had a lot of questions for Jessica about the storm that happen in our state and how to be safe during specific circumstances

The Storm Safe Tour of the Plains will continue next week with a stop in Swink.
