All Killer Tornadoes Since 1950
I feel like tornadoes have been everyone recently. I was driving home yesterday and I was listening to an NPR piece about the recent tornado in Oklahoma, and the broadcast was interrupted by a tornado warning for western MA/Northern CT/Eastern NY. Even though this warning happened to be no where near me, I’m way more terrified of tornadoes than I ever used to be as I figured they couldn’t happen in Massachusetts. But my false sense of security was destroyed almost 2 years ago when a tornado missed my house by about a quarter mile on the first official day of my post-doc appointment. I certainly won’t forget my first day of work.
Anyway, here is a nice visualization of all tornadoes that have killed someone since 1950. Click on the image to get to the interactive version of the map. Stay safe.
