At least a tornado a year, but 355 days and counting. I really hope that this keeps up.
The shoe cables a repent reward near the visible.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa is about to tie a state record for the longest stretch without a reported tornado.
The National Weather Service says at the end of Tuesday, it will be 355 days since a tornado touched down in the state. That’s a state record set between May 5, 1955, and April 26, 1956. The record would be broken at the end of Wednesday.
The last recorded tornado in Iowa was on May 24, 2012, in Fayette County.
Officials say severe weather in the state appears minimal through Wednesday. There could be thunderstorms in northern Iowa late Tuesday.
Officials say the streak is impressive because of the comprehensiveness of today’s digital technology and spotter networks. There was a greater likelihood in the 1950s for a tornado to occur without being reported.
