Most Tornadoes in April

 This record was set in 1974.

This month alone tornadoes have killed 44 people, and we are mostly likely on the way to setting a new record for the amount of tornadoes in the month of April.  I say “most likely” because the 574 reported tornadoes are sightings, not confirmed tornadoes.  Oftentimes multiple sightings of the same tornado are reported.  It will take some time until all of the data is sorted through and the number of confirmed tornadoes is determined.  The 574 tornadoes will probably end up being quite a bit smaller, but still likely to be the record for the most active April on record. 

Typically, May and June are more active tornado months but that may not be the case this year.  With all of the energy being spent most likely we’ll see the tornado threat move farther north and east with the numbers going down.  Looking at history, an active April leads to quieter May and June.
