Severe Weather Workshop Today At Saline Center

Our area is in the heart of Tornado Alley. That is why the Times recommends that area residents consider attending the 20th annual Regional Severe Weather, set for 12:30 p.m. today, March 29, at Saline Center Hall, just southwest of Dorchester at the intersection of County Road M and Hwy. 15.

Storm-chasing videos, severe weather safety, communications, mass casualty and emergency management and displays will be part of the seminar.  

Special presenters will be experts from the National Weather Service, Dr. Ken Dewey of UNL, and 10/11 News meteorologist Brad Anderson and Channel 8's Luke Dorris.

This afternoon's keynote presentation will be given by the Twister Sisters, also known as Peggy Willenbeg and Melanie Metz, who will recognize the 10th anniversary of the Hallam tornado. 

More information is available by calling (402) 821-3010 or emailing at

  1. BJ put on another great weather symposium. Saline Counties is the best in Nebraska, and it is because of the work BJ puts into it, and I am sure he had some help as well!

    I was proud to come down to Saline Center and attend this important training in my home county!
