Help Measure Rain!

It doesn’t seem as if we get a lot of rain on Seabrook Island, which makes it even more important to measure and report the amount of rain we do get.  Meteorologists, hydrologists, engineers, builders, farmers, etc depend on patterns of rainfall and droughts to perform their jobs and plan for the future.

CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network) is looking for volunteers to measure and report rain, hail, and snow in their backyards.  CoCoRaHS started at Colorado State University and the information is used by the National Weather Service, emergency managers, city utilities, and USDA among many other organizations. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) are major sponsors of CoCoRaHS.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome and will be trained on how to install gauges, measure precipitation and transmit the results.

For more information, go to their website:  https://www.cocorahs.org/
