The past few months, at least in the US, it's seemed like the weather has become increasingly violent. It's almost a weekly thing, a few times even bi-weekly, of storms producing destructive tornados in the midwest.
I live in Maryland. Right now, there's a tornado warning for my neighboring counties, and a watch for mine. This is like the third time this month at least that we've had a destructive storms producing tornados. Some tornados touched down in a northern county last week and there were damaging winds and a few tornados spotted earlier in the month. I cannot remember a time when we've had this many destructive storms in a short amount of time. It's still early spring and we're having more destructive storms than most summers.
Anybody else feel the same way?
The average number of confirmed tornadoes in April is 116. The previous record for the month was 267 back in 1974.
The weather service says more than 200 twisters have already been confirmed this month, and that number could be as high as 275 by the end of the week.
