Local amateur radio operators Priscilla Beauregard and Teddy Bruski were among more than a dozen people who attended the SKYWARN severe weather program conducted by the National Weather Service on Tuesday.

“Hams” such as Beauregard, whose call sign is KE5UES, and Bruski, KE5UET, are crucial to National Weather Service storm-spotting efforts, said Mark Fox, warning coordination meteorologist at the agency’s Fort Worth office.
