1969: The Clovis Civil Defense Board was meeting with area law enforcement officials to consider establishing a “tornado advance alert system,” according to the Clovis News-Journal.

Charles H. Crouch, chief meteorologist at the U.S. Weather Bureau in Amarillo, was planning to speak to the board about how the bureau could contribute to the cause.
