NOME, Alaska (KTUU) - Alaska’s Weather Source Weather Lab made a special trip this week to Nome Elementary School, where class was cancelled early Friday to prepare for a major storm, and again Monday to recover from the storm.
On their first day back in class, the students’ minds were still on the weekend storm and the damage it caused. These third graders are getting real-life lessons on what it’s like to be a part of a community, the importance of knowing the weather forecast, and being prepared for what’s coming.
Check out the full weather lab series here, where you can also request a visit from one of Alaska’s Weather Source meteorologists for your school or community group.
