On Wednesday, Meteorologist Alex O'Brien visited with students virtually to talk about severe weather in Colorado. All the students learned how to be safe during winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods.

She first spoke with the 3rd graders in Mrs. Vlad's class from Taylor Elementary. The students had great questions about tornadoes and the bomb cyclone.

Then she met with the 3rd and 4th graders in Ms. Eschler's class from Trailblazer Elementary. They were also very curious about tornadoes and blizzards and were great listeners.
