This Spring Is Forecast To Be The Most Active Tornado Season Illinois Has Seen In Years
Tornadoes can happen just about anywhere and at any time, so long as conditions are optimal for one to form. With an average width of 300-500 yards, traveling as far as 50 miles, and internal wind speeds of 100-500 mph, these funnels can be violent and create mass destruction in their wakes. Tornadoes occur most frequently in the central part of the United States in the Great Plains region, including Illinois. And in 2021, weather models are already predicting an above-average tornado season.
