Pretty informative as to where you shouldn't live if you're afraid of a tornado.

 

 

The process of creating this is outlined here...

never realized it was such a big portion of the US!

 

even we've been having all sorts of tornado watches and warnings with some smaller funnel clouds being photographed but luckily no damage.  It's been a wet and cold spring after a wet and cold and long winter.  Guess the cold spring is good though as far as tornados!

I gathered from those graphs that the NE sucks so badly, it draws a vast majority of tornadoes it's way.
