The Kansas Department of Emergency Management will host two live chats on Twitter Friday about severe weather.

The chats will be at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., said Jane Welch, a spokeswoman for the adjutant general’s department. Twitter users can go online and look for @KansasEmergency or use their smartphone to join a dialogue about severe weather and what the public can do to be prepared.

The chats will last for one hour apiece.
