Tim Heller: Rainfall volunteers needed
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The National Weather Service and Harris County Flood Control District are looking for a few good men and women to be part of CoCoRaHS. While it might sound like the name of a bug, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network is a non-profit, community-based organization that measures rain, hail and snow across the United States.According to Jeff Lindner, coordinator for Houston-Galveston region, "You do not need a meteorology degree -- just an interest in weather conditions and a desire to learn more about how weather impacts our region." Local agencies use that data to determine exactly where heaviest rain has fallen and where the potential for flooding is greatest.
Currently 338 volunteers report rainfall from their backyard around the Houston-Galveston. For more information and to join CoCoRaHS, go to the organization website here: www.cocorahs.org
