FLORA, Ind. (WLFI) -- Kids in Carroll County are learning about severe weather safety.

WLFI meteorologist Anne Brown visited Carroll Elementary School in Flora Friday afternoon.

Second graders learned what to do and where to go in case of a tornado, flood or severe thunderstorm.

The students have been learning about severe weather in class.

Second grade teacher Diana Brown said it's crucial to teach kids early on what they should do in case of an emergency.

"They're becoming more independant and sometimes they are by themselves. They might be outside by themselves playing, they might be at a park playing nearby, and it's important for them to know that htye need to get somewhere safe if they hear an alarm or a tone sound," said Brown.

Anne quizzed them on weather trivia and they were given a chance to ask her questions.

Diane Brown said severe weather is always a topic of discussion in the classroom this time of year.

"We've had some stories related to weather and so this was kind of just icing on the cake to have somebody come in and put it all together for us," said Brown.

After Friday's lesson the teachers plan on going in depth about scientific equipment used by meteorologists.
