- No love lost on February tornadoes
Last Updated: July 28, 2016 It’s February, the month for love, right? Well, that doesn’t mean that deadly tornadoes take a break. According to the Weather Channel, the second month of the year is no stranger to tornadoes. So what better way to show someone you love them and want to protect them? A tornado safe room definitely tells someone how much you love them.
The NOAA reports that an average of 29 tornadoes occur in the U.S. in February of each year. And there are specific locations where the storms typically form. While they tend to occur in the Gulf Coast states, they can reach all the way to the Ohio Valley.
Texas and Mississippi lead the pack, with 190 February touchdowns apiece reported between 1950 and 2014, according to records available through the Storm Prediction Center. Florida is next, with 177 touchdowns, followed by Alabama with 131 and Louisiana with 122.
Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have not had a February tornado touchdown reported in modern history. These include New England, the northern Plains, and parts of the mountain west.
