2011 Tornadoes By State

Posted in Storm Chasing at 8:00 am by Rebekah

Which state do you think has had the most tornado reports so far in 2011?

You might be surprised.

Here’s a map from the Storm Prediction Center showing the location of tornado reports in the U.S. so far, not including the few Georgia tornadoes from yesterday (keep in mind that this is a preliminary map, and not all tornadoes are reported, just as not every report turns out to be a tornado):

The answer is Louisiana!

Louisiana has had 28 tornado reports. Tennessee came in second, with 23 tornado reports. Alabama and Iowa are tied at third, with 18 tornado reports.
