USA - Tornadoes

10 posts in this topic

I follow the following links and have done some for a couple of years.

What appears to strike home for me is that this season is unusually quiet. With ony 2 years to go on, and being from England this could be gross misunderstanding by myself, but has this been a very quiet season so far?

^I noticed the same. A few weeks ago there appeared to be more storm activity than usual (from what I could tell, at least), now it seems to have stopped.

Seems same as usual to me. They come and go, and when they come they're usually a supprise. The worst is always the one you experience.

It does seem to me the seasons have shifted, but I'm wondering now if that's not abnormal too. Unless there's a major geological shift, pretty sure the pendulum will swing and nature will balance against extreme and find its relatively normal place. Cycles cycles cycles, there's nothing new.

Arctic was a tropic it's coming out? Cycles.

The uk gets just as many Tornados as the US except ours are tiddly! Very rarely do they actually cause any damage.

^There are around 30 tornadoes in the UK each year, and over 1,000 in the US. But if you count all of the tornadoes in the UK which don't touch down on the ground there would probably be a lot more. :tu:

Found a few news articles whilst seeing out a boring Friday at work -

(stormchaser moaning about a quiet May)

An idea on the reason is a weaker than usual El Nino (sp?).

I'm glad I live in Canada... Man.. Tornados scare the begeezes out of me..

There was 1 tornado at my cottage once, it only knocked down a few trees and a power line.. The storm with it was bad though.

There was some at my work, but they didn't touch ground so I suppose they weren't tornados - but that storm was the craziest I've ever seen... It broke my window, and all the horses were freaking out... The guys that were coming to pick me up said they saw funnel clouds and the sky was purple. We don't get that often... Maybe once every few years.

Does anyone live where big tornado's are the norm? I'd be scared to death... I cried when it broke my window because I was by myself and couldn't get ahold of anyone.

heh :)

No tornado or tornado warning though.

Expected to be an above average hurricane season mind (not on the scale of 2005 mind)
