On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien spoke with students from Pueblo West and Colorado Springs virtually about how to stay safe during severe weather.

At Cedar Ridge Elementary school in Pueblo West, she spoke to the 4th graders in Mr. Pineda and Mrs. Schirmer and Mrs. Welch's classes. The students had a lot of really great questions after the presentation.

At Fremont Elementary school in Colorado Springs, she met with Mrs. Holmes-Stanciu's kindergarten class. The students loved to learn about lightning and the weather dance.
