Tornado Count Remains Low

By Paul Homewood A quick update on US tornadoes, which have continued to run at well below average levels. Based on provisional numbers, tornado numbers are the second lowest of the last decade, up to the end of September. (Tornado numbers are confirmed up to July). Last year boasted the lowest number, both at this stage of the year and for the full year. On a longer term, the “inflation adjusted” number is also close to the minimum. As for stronger tornadoes, there have so far been eight EF-4 tornadoes, and no EF-5’s. Last year there were also eight EF-4’s, for the full year, and one EF-5.
