On Wednesday, KLTV Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto took his Project Tornado presentation to the second graders of Jackson Elementary School.
From 9:30-10:30 a.m., Mr. Scirto spoke with the group of 100 students who, he said, were very well-behaved and smart. They learned the difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning, and what to do if a tornado comes to their own neighborhoods, among many other things.
The kids thought the coolest thing he taught them was that during a thunderstorm, they should not take a bath or shower!
They also thought it was funny that Mr. Scirto told them when he was their age, he'd hide under the covers...head and all!
