Think of tornadoes and you probably think of the Great Plains of America - the setting for films such as the Wizard of Oz and Twister. That is certainly where the deadliest of them originate. (The Tristate Twister of 1925 travelled over 200 miles, killing almost 200 people and injuring another 2000.)
