KLTV-TV rolls out Project Tornado

Anyone who has lived in Texas for any amount of time knows that tornado season is serious weather time. 

But educating viewers before a storm hits can be critical to preventing injuries and saving lives. 

That is why for 31 years, KLTV Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto has dedicated his time, effort and passion to KLTV’s annual Project Tornado. 

Each year, armed with an educational presentation and a fun and informative activity booklet, Mark visits 10 primary and elementary schools in East Texas with one purpose in mind – teaching our children what to do (and what not to do) if they’re ever faced with a life-threatening tornado. 

Because of his tireless dedication, Project Tornado has become a staple in East Texas schools, and children who saw the presentation when he first started are now teaching or raising the children who are seeing it today.  

In addition to Scirto’s school visits, Project Tornado will be available to every school in East Texas through KLTV’s new digital newscast, "East Texas Now," with our first Project Tornado Live on April 25. 

This live, interactive presentation will originate from the KLTV newsroom and will double the traditional impact of this important presentation – reaching thousands of students and school administrators.
