WAFF Weather Road Tour
Most of us North Alabamians know the importance of being weather aware. Especially after April 27th, 2011, a lot of us have emergency plans in place for our family. At the very least, you bought a car charger for your electronics so you can stay in touch in case of a prolonged power outage.
On the Road
But what else is there to know about the weather where you live? The WAFF 48 Storm Team is coming to a school near you to share their extensive weather knowledge.
The first WAFF 48 Weather Road Tour in this series kicked off last week in Florence. We had a great turnout and a lot of fun.
Get Social, Stay Safe
One thing we do at WAFF is use social media to help our viewers stay weather aware. We used social media before the tornado outbreak, but on April 27th and the days that followed, Twitter and Facebook were lifelines. Power was out, but our fans could keep up with news and weather on mobile devices. The Storm Team will highlight the ways we keep you connected and have devices on hand so you can connect with us right away.
Make sure to stop by and try your hand at being a meteorologist. We’ll even snap some pictures for you.
Hands On Fun
On this Road Tour, Sci-Quest joins us to show off some amazing experiments. They’ll have a booth set up and they will have demonstrations during the Road Tour presentation. The kids will definitely get a kick out of the hands-on approach to science.
We’ll also be programming weather radios at the Road Tour events for free. This is a service we offer every day at the station, but why not come out and meet the Storm Team and have one of them program your radio? You can also register to win a free weather radio.
