There has been a slight decrease in the Great Plains, with the biggest drop in central and eastern Texas. Even with the decline, Texas — which likes to boast that everything is bigger there — still gets more tornadoes than any other state.
Also, more people live in vulnerable mobile homes and tornadoes are more likely to happen at night in those places, Gensini says. Even though Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma get many more tornadoes, the four deadliest states for tornadoes are Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee and Arkansas, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
It looks at differences between wind speed and direction at different altitudes, how unstable the air is and humidity. The more of those three ingredients, the more likely tornadoes will form. The increases in this measurement mirrored slightly smaller increases found in number of twisters.
The study looked at changes since Everywhere east of the Mississippi, except the west coast of Florida, is seeing some increase in tornado activity.
The biggest increase occurred in states bordering the Mississippi River.
