8 Facts About The Biggest Tornadoes On Earth

Post by Riddick » 06-29-2017 12:59 AM


About as American as apple pie, the United States is home to the majority of all tornadoes that touch down around the world every year. While most twisters are small and last only a couple of minutes, a small percentage can grow enormous and last for hours, sometimes tearing a path across entire states. In a category all their own, the largest tornadoes are some of the scariest weather conditions nature can create. FULL STORY

Morn'in Riddick, :o

I'd hoped for at least a mention of this March 18, 1925 Midwest America weather event in the FULL STORY.

So we can mention it here, The Great Tri-State Tornado :!:

If there were any biggest or longest track records to set, it sadly set'em! :shock:

:raspberry From Wikipedia...........

The Tri-State Tornado of Wednesday, March 18, 1925 was the deadliest tornado in U.S. history.[3] It was also the most exceptional tornado during a major outbreak of at least twelve known significant tornadoes spanning a large portion of the Midwestern and Southern U.S. The tornado alone inflicted 695 fatalities,[4] more than twice as many as the second deadliest, the Great Natchez Tornado of 1840. The 151 to 235 mi (243 to 378 km) track left by the tornado was the longest ever recorded in the world as it crossed from southeastern Missouri, through southern Illinois, then into southwestern Indiana.[5] Although not officially rated by NOAA, it is recognized by most experts (such as Tom Grazulis[6] and Ted Fujita[7]) as an F5 tornado, the maximum damage rating issued on the Fujita scale.[8]


Heck! This bad old vortex could have been an F7 or even an F10 tornado :!:

So scroll down and enlarge (Ctrl) the page to read what this monster did in Southern Illinois; you won't believe it! :shock:

Snip-it: Almost every structure in Gorham, IL was leveled or swept away, and railroad tracks were reportedly ripped from the ground! :o

Here's the FULL STORY of our small Indiana town being "just clipped" as it passed by and what was erected on it's 1925 path many years later in 2003! :wink:
