Map of the Week

Examining the Correlation of F5 Tornadoes to Tornado Prone Areas of the United States
Tornadoes have been found to occur during each month of the year; however, March through June marks an especially higher outbreak of these occurrences during a time known as "Tornado Season".

This interactive map examines the density of tornado occurrences over a 60-year period and how F5 tornadoes (the largest and deadliest) correlate with tornado prone areas of the United States.

 *Bi-weekly maps will be released throughout the 2017 Spring Semester on a variety of topics.
