 Tornado event counts on this page are by county segments and not by whole tornado tracks.

 

  • When final statistics are computed, severe weather events of the same type (hail or wind) that are (1.) within 10 miles and 15 minutes of each other AND (2.) within the same county are combined.  Exceptions are made for major events that meet certain criteria (baseball-size hail, 75+ mph winds).
  • The tornado count is by county track segments and not entire tornado tracks.
