The USA uses 26% of all the world's energy. It would be a safe approximation to say we use 26% of any one energy source as well. I would figure the margin of error in that ap…proximation to be less than 5%. The margin of error might be higher for nuclear and biomass (i.e. wood) fuels and less for fossil fuels since we could be expected to use a higher proportion of the high tech fuels and a lower proportion of the low tech fuels.
Tornadoes occur mostly in Tornado Alley. Tornadoes occur mostly in Tornado Alley, a region that stretches from Texas to Iowa with the highest activity in Texas, Oklahoma, …and Kansas. However, all 50 states, including Alaska and Hawaii, have had tornadoes.
The strongest tornadoes in the United States have mostly occurred on the Great Plains and in the Deep South.
Tornado season stretches from March through July, with May being the peak month. However, tornadoes can and do occur in all 12 months.
According to data from the past 30 years about 2.3% of tornadoes occur in January, at least in the U.S.
Tornado season begins in March and ends in July. April is historically the deadliest month, although May has more tornadoes. However, tornadoes hit the U.s. in all months. T…ornado season is simply more active.
70% U.S tornadoes occur in the Great Plains.
They don't only occur in the U.S. Tornadoes have been recorded on every continent except Antarctica and some of the deadliest tornadoes have occurred in Asia. However, the U.S…. does have the highest number of tornadoes of any other country. This is due mostly to the climate setup, which has a near perfect setup for combining colliding air masses, instability, and strong wind shear to create strong, rotating thunderstorms called supercells. These storms produce the vast majority of tornadoes. Additionally, the U.S. keeps detailed records of its tornadoes, something most countries don't do.
Tornadoes occur in the U.S. in all seasons, but they are most common in the spring.
The infamous Waco tornado occurred on May 11, 1953. It is unknown when a tornado might hit Waco again.
About 2.6% of tornadoes in the United States occur in February. Global statistics are not available.
Tornadoes can occur in all parts of the United States except northern Alaska. The majority occur between the Rockies and the Appalachians, particularly on the Great Plains… and in the Deep South.
Fire tornadoes, more properly called firewhirls, can occur in any area prone to major fires.This would include most of the Southwestern United States.
Tornadoes occur in about 1% of thunderstorms.
Since 1950, the US has recorded more than 57,000 tornadoes. However, since we missed many of the weaker ones, the number is probably closer to 80,000.
Official records indicate 75 to 80 percent of the world's tornadoes occur in the U.S. This statistic, however, is highly inaccurate as it only counts recorded tornadoes. T…he U.S. portion of the world's tornadoes is probably much smaller. The United States is a wealthy nation with plenty of resources to track down almost every tornado that touches down within its borders, including minor ones that do no more than topple a few trees. Many other countries do not conduct tornado surveys, resulting an many, if not most tornadoes going unrecorded. Tornadoes that touch down in very remote areas are also unlikely to be recorded.
