WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ National Weather Service officials in Wichita have retooled their storm spotter training classes as they prepare for presentations around the region.

The Wichita Eagle reports the weather service's ``Storm Fury on the Plains'' presentations for this year will stress the importance of situational awareness.

The classes are being held in all 26 counties in the Wichita branch's warning coverage area. The first will be Monday night in Eureka, with March and April presentations scheduled for Wichita.

Meteorologist Chance Hayes says the weather service offers presentations around the state because Kansans have a tendency to become complacent around storms.

Hayes says people need to realize that tornadoes don't always react in a typical fashion.
