The US has 1,200 tornadoes each year. That’s 4 times as many as the rest of the world combined

  • Over 1,200 tornadoes strike American soil each year. That’s four times as many twisters as the rest of the world combined.
  • The US has more tornadoes than anywhere else in the world because the Great Plains are home to Tornado Alley.
  • Winds from the Gulf of Mexico and the Rocky Mountains come together to create the perfect conditions for making twisters right in the middle of America.
