Tornadoes in Europe

By July 13, 2003

Follow me on:

A new report finds that there are approximately 700 tornadoes each year in Europe. This number is far more than previously suspected (yet less than the 800-1200 which occur in the U.S. each year). Topping the list of tornado-active European countries are the UK with 50 annually and the Netherlands with 35 each year. More information about tornadoes.

Haha….you’re a 40 year old woman who sucks at spelling.

And you’re angry? I’m angry at the entire homosapien species. Just in case you do not know, that means Humans! We have screwed up this planet much much much worse than a few tornadoes can do.

A house can be rebuilt, but we lose VITAL species to our ecosystem because of our selfishness.

If you think that our homes being destroyed is more important than preserving our planet, then I don’t understand how you’ve made it in life.

What is your definition of a tornado for Europe, anything above 10 m/s?
Or are they so common they are not reported on TV or in the pres?
