Learn about Severe Weather and Disaster Preparedness during Free Program on April 21

CARTERVILLE, IL — Thunderstorms, lightning, flooding, hail, and tornadoes are common occurrences in our region. But why do they happen, and have they become more extreme in recent years? In a free seminar on April 21, State Master Naturalist and Climate Change Specialist Duane Friend will discuss facts and research surrounding severe weather and share ways to be prepared when severe weather strikes.

For almost 30 years, Friend has worked at Illinois Extension, providing educational programs to adult and youth audiences about soil quality, weather and climate, energy conservation, and disaster preparedness. Those interested in learning more about all aspects of severe weather are encouraged to attend this free program.

The event will be held on Thursday, April 21, at 6:00 p.m. at the Mees Center at John A. Logan College, located at 700 Logan College Drive in Carterville. The Mees Center is within the historic village in the southeast part of campus. Reserve your spot by visiting go.illinois.edu/severeweatherseminar or by calling (618) 687-1727.

University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in programming, please contact Maggie Ray at mro@illinois.edu. Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time to meet your access needs.
