NWS public forum to be held on week of 2005 tornado anniversary

Posted: Updated:

The National Weather Service will host a public forum on the 8th anniversary of the November 6th tornado.

The weather service will talk about the dangers of tornadoes that strike during the night and in "cooler seasons."

Officials say that's what happened back in 2005 when tornadoes hit Vanderburgh and Warrick Counties at 2:00 in the morning.
     
The tornado hit at 2:00 a.m. and tore a 41-mile swath of damage through portions of Kentucky and southwestern Indiana. Two dozen people died in the storms. Most of the victims were at the Eastbrook Mobile Home Park.

The meeting will take place Tuesday at the Red Cross building in Evansville from 10:00 a.m. until noon.
