... Fall brings the risk of more tornadoes to our region...

Tornadoes have caused loss of life and much destruction in our
region during the fall season. Late September through October and
much of November typically bring more favorable conditions for
tornadoes and other severe thunderstorm events such as large hail
and damaging thunderstorm winds. This increase is driven by a more
dynamic atmosphere that occurs during the fall transition to
cooler temperatures. This transition period sometimes yields low
pressure systems and their associated frontal systems that can
provide an environment favorable for severe thunderstorms,
including tornadoes. Some Stark reminders of our fall tornado
threat include:

*september 22-23, 2006: 10 tornadoes struck our region, including
   a violent EF4 over Perry County, Missouri and Jackson County,

*October 18, 2007: 16 tornadoes pummeled our region, including an
   EF3 tornado in Owensboro, Kentucky. Twenty-two people were

*October 31, 2013: a record October outbreak occurred with 19
   tornadoes and 2 microbursts.

*November 6, 2005: an EF3 tornado developed near Smith Grove,
   Kentucky before killing 25 people in the Evansville, Indiana

*November 15, 2005: an EF4 tornado struck the Madisonville,
   Kentucky area, injuring 27, with the longest track Kentucky
   tornado (ef3) in decades striking Marshall and adjacent

*November 17, 2013: a dozen tornadoes, including 8 in the
   strong category, tore across our region, injuring dozens and
   killing 3 in or near Brookport, Illinois.

*December 23, 2015: 9 tornadoes struck our region.

As a result, it is vital that you be prepared as we progress
through the fall tornado season and beyond. Each day this week,
