Tornadoes

A tornado is defined as a violently rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. The most violent tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction with wind speeds of 250 mph or more. In an average year, 800 tornadoes are reported nationwide, resulting in 80 deaths and over 1,500 injuries. Florida is #1 in number of tornadoes per square mile. Most are weak; however, strong ones do occur.
