On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien virtually met with elementary schoolers in Colorado Springs and Pueblo. The students learned about severe weather in Colorado and how to stay safe during dangerous conditions.

First, she met with the kindergartners at Rocky Mountain Classical Academy and they loved the weather dance!

Then she spoke with the 5th graders at Giberson Elementary. They knew exactly where to go during a tornado warning.

And finally, she spoke with the 3rd graders in Mrs. Kolesarek's class at Sierra Vista Elementary and they had great questions.
