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.
