IOWA, LA (KPLC) - It is hurricane season, and just because you're a child it doesn't mean you don't need to be prepared for severe weather.
Warning coordination meteorologist Roger Erickson was at the Iowa Library speaking to kids about weather safety.
Erickson says, "you know, even young kids, under 4 or 5 years old can still understand and respect the weather. Whether we're talking about the lightning dangers out there...whether we're talking about hurricane dangers as well."
Erickson has more libraries to visit on his tour. You can contact the Calcasieu Parish Library for more details.
