On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien had a virtual visit with Ms. Fink's class from McAuliffe Elementary and Miss Hudgins's class from French Elementary.
The students learned about winter storms, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods. They learned how to prepare ahead of the storm and take action during the storm.
The students all had great questions and were enthusiastic during the presentation.
