- 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.
