Meteorologist Mike Caplan imparts weather wisdom at Gurnee school
Students at Spaulding Elementary School in Gurnee have been studying weather lately, so who better for a special visitor Thursday than Fox News Chicago meteorologist Mike Caplan?
As a kid Caplan, a resident of Gurnee, went to Gurnee Grade School, Viking Middle School and Warren Township High School. His presentation focused on thunderstorms and the dangers that come with them, such as lightning and tornadoes.
"We are very excited that Mr. Caplan agreed to come and speak to our kids," Spaulding Principal Ellen E. Mauer said. "(Students are) fascinated by weather and the fact they get to watch someone talk to them that's on TV makes them much more interested in what's going on."
At the end of the presentation Caplan played a tornado video and promised to mention the school on his next broadcast.
