Tornado count 100% above average

Tornado touchdowns are near record levels in the USA as summer is about to get underway and more twisters for the remainder of the season are set to top new highs.

So far this year twisters have already outnumbered last year and are 106% above normal levels and a hot and sticky summer is likely to see a few more develop.
