When a tornado meets a hurricane

Hurricane season is still a couple months away …

But tornado season is touching down up on the continent.

This map shows a monthly distribution of both across North America.

The source for the hurricanes is from NOAA whereas the tornado map I copied from a coffee table book that I have in my office. Ideally, the tornado coverage would have the same detail as the NOAA’s multicolored coverage for tropical storms.

It’s been a couple years now since a hurricane made landfall in the United States.

Not so for the tornadoes:

Unfortunately they strike every year.

We even get occasional tornadoes in Utah - but at least we don't have to worry about the hurricanes...
