  1. Tornadoes are more common in United States than in any other country. The United States receives more than 1,200 tornadoes annually€”four times the amount seen in Europe. Violent tornadoes€”those rated EF4 or EF5 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale€”occur more often in the United States than in any other country. Most tornadoes in the United States occur east of the Rocky Mountains. The Great Plains, the Midwest, the Mississippi Valley and the southern United States are all areas that are vulnerable to tornadoes. They are relatively rare west of the Rockies and are also less frequent in the northeastern states. Tornado Alley is a colloquial term for an area particularly prone to tornadoes. There is no officially defined ‘Tornado Alley’ – at its broadest this area stretches from North Texas to Canada with its core centered on Oklahoma, Kansas and northern Texas. Another highly significant region – colloquially known as Dixie Alley – is the southern United States and particularly the northern and central parts of Alabama and Mississippi. Florida is one of the most tornado prone states. However, Florida tornadoes only rarely approach the strength of those that occur elsewhere.
