... Fall brings the risk of more tornadoes to our region...

Tornadoes have caused loss of life and much destruction in our
region during the fall season. Late September through October and
much of November typically bring more favorable conditions for
tornadoes and other severe thunderstorm events such as large hail
and damaging thunderstorm winds. This increase is driven by a more
dynamic atmosphere that occurs during the fall transition to
cooler temperatures. This transition period sometimes yields low
pressure systems and their associated frontal systems that can
provide an environment favorable for severe thunderstorms,
including tornadoes. Some Stark reminders of our fall tornado
threat include:

* September 22-23, 2006; 10 tornadoes struck our region, including
an EF4 in Perry County, MO and Jackson County, IL.

* October 18, 2007; 16 tornadoes struck our region including an
EF3 tornado in Owensboro, KY. Twenty two were injured.

* October 31, 2013; a record tornado outbreak in our region for
October with 17 tornadoes.

* November 6, 2005; an EF3 tornado developed near Smith Mills, KY
before killing 25 in the Evansville, in area.

* November 15, 2005; an EF4 tornado struck the Madisonville, KY
area,injuring 27 with the longest track KY tornado (ef3) in
decades striking Marshall and adjacent counties.

* November 17, 2013; an EF3 tornado kills 3 people in/near Brookport

As a result, it is vital that you be prepared as we progress through
the fall tornado season. Each day this week we will discuss a
variety of topics in preparation of our fall severe weather
