Default Where do tornadoes hit the most in the US?

Here are the top 5 states

5. Nebraska, 57 tornadoes on average.

4. Oklahoma, 62 tornadoes on average.

3. Florida, 66 tornadoes on average.

2. Kansas, 96 tornadoes on average.

1. Texas, 155 tornadoes on average.

Tornadoes can happen any time of the year, but there are distinct seasons for twisters in different parts of the country, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Storm Prediction Center (SPC). On average, around 1,200 tornadoes are reported in the U.S. every year, more than any country in the world.

According to NOAA, some parts of the world are much more prone to tornadoes than others. The middle latitudes, particularly between about 30 degrees and 50 degrees North or South, provide the most favorable environment for "tornadogenesis."

"This is the region where cold, polar air meets against warmer, subtropical air, often generating convective precipitation along the collision boundaries," according to the agency. "In addition, air in the midlatitudes often flows at different speeds and directions at different levels of the troposphere, facilitating the development of rotation within a storm cell."

"There is a general northward shift in 'tornado season' in the U.S. from late winter through midsummer," the SPC says. "The peak period for tornadoes in the Southern Plains, for example, is during May into early June. On the Gulf Coast, it is earlier during the spring; in the Northern Plains and upper Midwest, it is June or July."

I've been through a few, scared the chit out of everyone. Our town was hit hard many years ago by three at once, many lots are still empty.

I was in the Arrow Head Home subdivision at a friends house when the April 74 tornado hit Xenia Ohio. It sounded like a freight train and we headed for the basement. When it was over we went up the steps and had to push the door open The roof of the house was gone. The Arrow Head area was a mess. Over 30 people killed.

I've never seen one in person, but I was driving down the Parkway once, and the sky to the left of me was completely black. I read in the paper the next day that there was a tornado under that blackness. Closest I have come.
