Record US tornadoes for March

05-03-2012

Preliminary reports suggest that the US has experienced the highest number of tornadoes in March, since 1950.

However, RMS has said that the latest estimate of 129 is likely to be rounded down.

“While this year’s activity is already high, the peak months of tornado activity across the U.S. have yet to come,” says Neena Saith, director of catastrophe response at RMS. 

“Last year, the months of April through July saw the highest number of tornadoes for 2011, with 758 tornadoes spawning in April.”
