The Ohio History Center will explore severe Ohio weather this month. Visitors are invited to the Columbus museum to learn and, in some cases, reminisce about severe weather that has hit the Buckeye State over the years.

This Sunday, Jan. 6, the discussion will be about blizzards. Visitors can learn about the 1978 snow storm.

On Jan. 13, the lecture will focus on floods, including a devastating one in 1913.

On Jan. 20, talk will turn to tornadoes. Visitors will discuss July 12, 1992 when a record 28 tornadoes occurred in Ohio.

The series will conclude with a talk on earthquakes on Jan. 27.

The half-hour programs start at 2 p.m. each Sunday. The programs are free to attend with Ohio History Center admission, which costs $10 for adults (ages 13-59), $9 for seniors (60+), $5 for youth (ages 6-12). Children 5 and younger are free.

The center is located at 800 E. 17th Ave. For more information, call 614-297-2300 or visit ohiohistory.org.
