On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien met with elementary students to teach them how to be safe during all types of severe weather that we experience in Colorado.

First, she met with Mrs. Young's 2nd-grade class from Grand Mountain School. The students were very excited and had good questions after the presentation.

Then she spoke with all of the 3rd graders at Bennett Ranch Elementary. The students learned the weather dance after the presentation today and were great listeners.
