From late winter to mid-summer, tornado season sweeps through the South and Midwest states. Tornadoes are birthed from violent thunderstorms, when warm, moist air clashes with cooler, dry air to create instability in the atmosphere.
Similar to how earthquakes are rated on a Richter scale, tornadoes are scored by the Enhanced Fujita Scale from EF0 to EF5.

The National Weather Service predicted the recent dangerous tornado outbreak, so at least states could prepare themselves for the worst. With an average of 1,200 tornadoes reported each year, the USA has the highest number of tornadoes in the world, and this year is no exception. If wind direction changes and speeds up at the same time, this begins to create an area of rotation 2-6 miles wide, inside of which a vicious tornado can form.

Power outages are sweeping across several counties, and a half-mile-wide tornado rampaged for 80 miles through the suburbs of Little Rock, Arkansas.
