Tornado Records -- The GOOD Kind!

There wasn't a single tornado that caused extreme damage -- for the first time since records began being kept (1950). That type of tornado is defined as EF-4 and EF-5 intensity on the Fujita intensity scale.

Even better: the trend in this type of tornado is down.
And, 99 other great things are here.

ADDITION: I was not aware of this (posted 1:27pm CST). If we can get through the day (there is a tornado watch in effect as I write this) without a tornado death, and I think we can, this is quite an accomplishment for weather science.
The tornado warning system is a Nobel Prize-worthy endeavor.
Congratulations to meteorologists at the 
National Weather Service, 
in private sector meteorology and 
to emergency managers across our nation!
