What responsibility do scientists have to share severe weather information with the public?

They have a really large responsiblity. I happen to be a storm spotter with the National Weather Service and anything that I see that is a danger to the public it is my responsibility to inform the National Weather Service about it and then they alert the public with watches and warnings and outdoor sirens. So overall I think that meteorologists have a rather large responsiblity when it comes to share severe weather information with the public. Hope this helped! :)
