central United States. No one really knows for
sure how many there are in the US each year, but
it is estimated that over 1,000 tornadoes occur
each year in the US, although many go undetected and unreported. The States that are hit the most are Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois,Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma,South Dakota, and Texas. (Oklahoma itself has about 52 tornadoes occur on average each year).
Besides this region, portions of western
Europe are perhaps most notably at risk. In the
British Isles, an there is an average of
10 tornadoes per year. In Austria, about 2.6
tornadoes are recorded each year.
