On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited elementary students in Colorado Springs to teach them about the types of severe weather that occur in Colorado and how to prepare for them.

First, she met with Ms. Green's 5th-grade class at Turman Elementary. The students were awesome listeners and had great input during the presentation.

Then, she spoke with the kindergarteners at Legacy Peak Elementary. The students loved the weather videos and the experiment and were great listeners.
