Meteorologist Justin Berk helps Union Bridge students understand more about severe weather

November 8, 2022

Meteorologist Justin Berk took Elmer Wolfe Elementary by storm Monday with a presentation for about 400 students on severe weather. Berk’s Storm Smart assembly is designed to teach children about a spectrum of weather, including clouds, rainbows and storms. It also includes information about how to classify storms, hurricanes and tornadoes. Berk said student anxiety levels are often high regarding severe weather and his presentation helps kids become better prepared for and less anxious about storms. “I cover a lot of things,” Berk said, “and some kids will remember one thing while other kids remember something else — as long as the kids remember something. Then, I encourage them to repeat it or tell their parents when they go home.”
