Tony and Marcia,

Here's an interesting news clipping, showing that the recent onslaught of tornadoes more than doubled the previous record of the number of tornadoes in one week.  Not just broke the record, but more than doubled it.

Guess the Yakuza and Aum Shinrikyo (and maybe someone else like China) have been rather busy.




"Tornado week was highest at nearly 400," AP release, as printed in the Huntsville (Alabama) Times, Wednesday May 14, 2003, p. A9.
     Article in full: "Last week's almost 400 tornadoes set a record for the number of twisters in the United States during a single week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Tuesday.
     A preliminary count showed 384 tornadoes in 19 states between May 4 and May 10, NOAA's National Weather Service said.
     The most active previous week for tornadoes was May 12-18, 1995, when 171 tornadoes occurred."
