This storymap is based on storm reports used in the NOAA’s National Weather Service’s verification of storm events. Larger symbols indicate the higher intensity events based on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. If tornado track data exists, it is shown as a line from the start point to end point. Although tornadoes can occur throughout the year, prime time for twisters in the U.S. is spring and early summer. Larger symbols show more violent tornadoes. Zoom into the map to see approximate tornado tracks.
