Record January Tornadoes

What a month it has been for tornadoes in our country. It's not rare to see severe storms this month, or even tornadoes, in portions of the south. What is rare is to see the outbreak we saw that extended up and down the Mississippi River Valley, from Illinois and Wisconsin south into Arkansas and Mississippi.

There have been at least 3 tornadoes classified EF3 over the past week, one in Missouri, one in Illinois and one in Wisconsin.

Missouri and Mississippi have been the hardest hit in terms of the number of twisters.

Let's hope this was just a freak event and not a sign of the spring season that lies ahead.
