Indiana Dunes Hosts Severe Weather Program on April 13

The Indiana Dunes State Park Nature Center is hosting a special weather program, titled “Severe Weather and You” on at 2pm, Sunday April 13. The special speaker, Rob Stormer, holds twin engineering degrees and is a Senior Master Salvor handling ship accidents worldwide. He is also a Skywarn severe weather storm spotter and tornado chaser and has spotted and chased storms both shore-side and at sea.

Rob will emphasize severe weather preparedness, and also discuss local severe weather phenomena that is experienced along the Great Lakes. In addition, a real life disaster tabletop exercise using the audience to role play first responders will be demonstrated to fully grasp severe weather response.

Though the program is free, there is the standard park gate fee of $5 for Indiana vehicles and $10.00 for out of state vehicles. Annual park passes are available. For more information about this program or others at Indiana Dunes State Park contact the Nature Center at (219) 926-1390.  Keep an eye on Robin Storm’s Severe Weather Watch for more information.

Listener/reader comments

David Toste – Hi Peter, just wanted to drop you a quick email since your always wondering about your listeners. I’m located just outside of Toronto(Canada), not in the Maritime biz, but a sailor on Lake Ontario. I believe I heard about the podcast on Furled Sails Podcast and have been listening almost right from the being. Really enjoy it even thought I’m not in the biz.
