WILL-AM's meteorologist, Ed Kieser, will present a Tornado Preparedness Seminar at 7 p.m. March 20 in the UI Veterinary Medicine Large Animal Clinic Building. The session is free and open to the public. "Generally, last year was a quiet year for tornadoes, but it only takes one storm to cause devastating damage," Kieser said. "Unfortunately, there was a fatal tornado in our listening area last April." Shortly after midnight on April 27, 1994, a tornado struck West Lafayette and Lafayette, Ind., killing two people and injuring several. "The odds of surviving a tornado are at least 99 percent - if you follow proper safety procedures," Kieser said. "So, especially in this part of the country, it's very important to educate people about the dangers of tornadoes and the precautions people can take. That's why we're offering this session as a community service." In addition to discussing safety guidelines, Kieser will talk about how tornadoes form and how they are forecast, show video of tornadoes, and answer questions from the audience. "I'll be dispelling some tornado myths and talking about where and when tornadoes are most likely to strike," Kieser said.
