Tornado Infographic

With the tornado season now in full swing in the United States, I decided to do a little web surfing and I found this great infographic! 

Infographic displays copious amounts of information in easy to comprehend visual styles.  

This infographic that sources The Weather Channel focuses on general statistics for tornado occurrence in the United States.  

The graph shows the average amount of tornadoes per state, per year.  I was surprised that Connecticut has the highest annual occurrence of tornadoes in New England with an average of 3 tornadoes a year! 

The infographic also shows information on the most deadly tornadoes since the 1950's. No surprise that the Joplin tornado from 2011 tops the list.  

So check out this graph for some great stats on tornadoes!
