The Top Ten Tornado States and Predictions.... [View all]
For years, statisticians have counted just the shear number of tornado's in each state. The Weather Channel has added another factor to gauge where in reality tornado's have hit the hardest. They calculated the number per 10,000 miles in each state. As a result they have come up with an entire new listing.
For example, if you go by actual number of tornado's, Texas would be number one. However when you factor in the number of tornado's per 10,000 miles then Florida is number one. The state where the tornado paths run the longest is Mississippi. The highest percentage of killer tornado's of those that hit would be Tennessee.
Here is the list of the top ten most tornado states per 10,000 square miles. As Dr. Greg Forbes says, "Basically, these are the states with the most tornado's per square mile." Following the list is a video of Dr. Forbes' projection for the remainder of this year.
