Trinity School District First In Area With WeatherBug Lightning Detection

Broadcast Partner station KDKA CBS Pittsburgh reported on the new WeatherBug lightning detection and alerting system at Trinity Middle School in Washington, Penn.

The outdoor alerting system at the school will help take the guesswork out of when to stop outdoor activities and seek shelter indoors when lightning and severe weather nears.  The system automatically produces a high-decibel, attention-getting signal when in-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning enters a predetermined radius, such as 10 miles, surrounding the school. The lightning sensor at Trinity Middle School is part of the world’s largest total lightning network, which is operated by Earth Networks – WeatherBug.
