 Basic Reporting Procedures 

 Please remember to identify yourself as a trained spotter and give your ID number.

 Always use the "Four Ws" when reporting:

 - What
 - Where
 - When
 - What it's doing


 - Report any strong winds (50 mph or greater), or any wind that produces damage.

 - Report any hail.  Refer to hail size in comparison to coin (dime, nickel, penny, 
   quarter).  DO NOT mention "marble" size hail.

 - Report funnel clouds, wall clouds or tornadoes.  Remember, rotation and persistence  
   are the keys!!

 - Tornados are funnel clouds that have touched down. Look for debris at base

 - Report damage (even well after the event).

 - Report flooding.

 Who To Notify (800 number to be used by certified SkyWarn Spotters)

 Have the following information ready:

  • Skywarn Spotter ID number
  • Location: Lat /Long or GPS if known
  • Type of severe weather
  • Wind Speed if known
  • Direction Severe weather is moving
