Why talk about tornadoes?
Tornadoes have been reported in every state, and though they generally
occur during spring and summer, they can happen any time of the year.
While tornadoes can occur at any time of the day or night, they are most
likely to occur between 3:00 and 9:00 p.m. There are no areas immune
to tornadoes; they have been reported in mountains and valleys, over
deserts and swamps, from the Gulf Coast into Canada, in Hawaii and even
Alaska. Regardless of the location or time of year, if conditions are right,
a tornado can happen. Over 1,000 tornadoes are reported annually nationwide, and as our tornado detection systems improve, more are being
reported each year. However, sometimes tornadoes will develop in areas
in which no tornado watch or warning is in effect, so stay alert for
changing weather conditions.
