I think that this is vary good not only because it means that less people die per year. But also becouse it means less property damige. What I personally find interesting is that a vary high tornado year(543 dead) was just two years before. Also what is amazing is the last year that was lower that this one was from 1899-1900.

Storm chasers, media, public all had role in drama of El Reno tornado | Chris Kridler | Sky Diary Productions

Storm chasers, media, public all had role in drama of El Reno tornado | Chris Kridler | Sky Diary Productions | Tornado | Scoop.it
Storm chasers, the media and the public face complex questions in the aftermath of the El Reno, Oklahoma, EF5 tornado.
Ian Archibald's insight:

Last Friday was a very sad day for many of us, as the lives of many a storm chasers hero Tim Samaras, his son, Paul and life long friend Carl Young and others were unfortunately lost during a terrifying EF-5 2.6 mile wide monster tornado.

The video footage contained here can be very disturbing for some, and perhaps not suitable for young children (no blood, or injuries shown). But very important for many of us to realize the power of mother nature. She will do what she wants, when she wants. Having chased severe weather for more than 20 years, I am glad not to have been near El Reno last Friday. 

I will leave you with this thought. Take tornado warnings seriously. Even though 70% of tornado warned storms never drop a tornado, there is no reason to be any less vigillant. Don't assume anything. If you see severe weather approaching, take every possible precaution. Know where to go, and how to get there. 

 

Be safe, and as Tim said in his last tweet, "Stay Weather Savvy".

 

We will miss you, Tim. RIP
