She was the technical editor for the book,  Statistics for Big Data for Dummies that was published in 2015. Recently, she took a position at Purdue University as the Director of Assessment.

WeatherBug's Lightning Alert System at Tipton

Tipton Community School Corporation is a WeatherBug School. The WeatherBug Program collects weather data from our local site. This information is available to anyone in the community. Individual only need to download the program on their computer or app on their smartphone to receive weather information directly from Tipton. (Google WeatherBug)

As a WeatherBug School, TCSC has included the Lightning Alert System. The outdoor alerting system is a valuable community tool in alerting not only school patrons, but also patrons of the city park, the baseball diamonds, and fairground participants when lightning is in the immediate area. This system will sound a horn when lightning is detected eight miles away. This is a warning that people outside should seek shelter. (Click on the Blog's title to see full article including a map showing the range of the Lightning Alert System.)

Approximate range of the Lightning Alert Horns at TCSC.
When lightning is within 8 miles of the school, a fifteen (15) second alarm will sound. When lightning has cease to exist within this range for at least thirty (30) minutes, an all-clear signal will be given which is a series of three (3) short alarms of (5) seconds in duration each. Lightning alerts will also be received through individuals’ downloaded computer and phone applications.

The alarms will be activated between the hours of 6:00 am through 10:00 pm. This will prevent the alarms being sounded through the night or early morning hours.
