Iowa Tornado Numbers Down This Year

Statewide Iowa (RI) — While tornadoes can strike during any month of the year, Iowa is now out of the “peak” season for tornadoes and the numbers are well below the norm, according to meteorologist Craig Cogil at the National Weather Service.

Even with the 15 twisters statewide, none of them were very powerful and there were no reports of any injuries or significant property damage.

While some storms this spring and summer have dropped significant rain that caused severe flooding in parts of the state, Iowa has managed to miss most of the -very- bad weather. 

While Iowa’s only had 15 tornadoes this year, the state had 55 twisters in all of last year, including a dozen that were classified as EF-2s.
