Forecasters Say 2013 Tornado Season Fairly Quiet

Ad Feedback

Despite the deadly tornadoes plaguing Moore, Okla., and other cities in the Midwest and Plains, forecasters say so far the 2013 tornado season has been fairly quiet.

According to the National Severe Storms Laboratory, this year marks the longest the United States has gone into the month of May without seeing an EF1 or stronger tornado.

They say a cool spring has kept the number of tornadoes down so far and that typically the tornado season begins in the Midwest about a month earlier than it did this year.
