Stateline Tornadoes Since 1950

A recent report shows that the United States has had fewer than normal tornadoes during 2013.  Illinois and Wisconsin, as a whole, have witnessed the same trend.  That is not the case locally, however.

The Stateline had 8 confirmed tornadoes so far this year, all occurring between the end of May and the end of June.  Since 1950, our local area averages 3 to 4 tornadoes every year.  Within our 13 county area, Lee & Whiteside County in Illinois and Rock & Walworth County in Wisconsin have picked up the most tornadoes since 1950.  We all have the same exact risk, however, as nothing in our geography prevents tornadoes from forming or the paths they take.

Let’s hope the national trend continues locally for the rest of the year!
