They call it "tornado alley". An average of 1253 tornadoes occur in the USA each year as per Tornado Climatology.
"Tornado alley" - has no agreed upon boundaries - and is "a nickname given to an area in the southern plains of the central U.S. that consistently experiences a high frequency of tornadoes each year. Tornadoes in this region typically happen in late spring and occasionally the early fall."

THE 10 DEADLIEST TORNADOS IN US HISTORY
A powerful tornado devastated the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on Monday, killing 24 people, including nine children, according to the Oklahoma medical examiner's office. At one point, as many as 91 were feared dead, but authorities have since scaled back the official death toll.
Here are the 10 deadliest tornados in U.S. history:
1. March 18, 1925 - Missouri/Illinois/Indiana - 695 dead
2. May 6, 1840 - Natchez, Mississippi - 317 dead
3. May 27, 1896 - St. Louis - 255 dead
4. April 5, 1936 - Tupelo, Mississippi - 216 dead
5. April 6, 1936 - Gainesville, Georgia - 203 dead
6. April 9, 1947 - Woodward, Oklahoma - 181 dead
7. May 22, 2011 - Joplin, Missouri - 158 dead
8. April 24, 1908 - Amite, Louisiana/Purvis, Mississippi - 143 dead
9. June 12, 1899 - New Richmond, Wisconsin - 117 dead
10. June 3, 1953 - Flint, Michigan - 115 dead
By the way Lefties, Democrats and Communists think Tornadoes are because Center-Righties didn't give enough money to battle "climate change" or "global warming".
Sorry a$$holes, a TRACE gas of C02 has NOTHING TO DO WITH TORNADOES. Nature and storms just happen.
