EUGENE, Ore. — Some students at O’Hara Catholic School in Eugene got a unique opportunity to study weather science.

What looks like a piece of Styrofoam with batteries attached is actually a National Weather Service balloon. It was discovered by the father of one of the students while he was hunting, and it quickly turned into a science lesson.

Meteorologist Melissa Frey answers all your questions about this interesting find.

    Dear Mrs. Frey,
    Hello. I am Brigid Driscoll a student from Mantua elementary. I have been thinking this question lately, “How can we stay safe during hurricanes? And how do we do so?” Thank you so much for your time.
