Project: Tornado 2014


The premise is simple! Each school day for an entire month, our weather team will speak to children about the power of severe weather. We have put all of the important information into a 45-50 minute presentation that suits a normal class schedule. It is our hope that the information is shared with family and friends.

The goal is to get as many people prepared for severe weather season as possible. June is prime-time for severe weather in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. Project: Tornado allows us to get the right information to the most students. By teaching children in grades 3 through 7, the information is received and shared throughout the household. So while we may speak to 5,000 students we know it is shared to entire families making that number multiply by several times.
