On Thursday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited the kindergarten through 5th graders at D11's Fremont Elementary School in Colorado Springs.

The students learned about severe weather that happens in Colorado and how to be safe from it. They learned about winter storms, thunderstorms, flash floods, tornadoes and wildfires.

Everyone had a lot of fun learning today and the students were great at both listening and participating in the presentation today.
