A tornado striking a given area does not change that area's chances be being hit again in the future. In some tornado outbreaks the same location has been hit two or even three times in the same day. It is also possible, though rare, for a spot to be hit twice by the same tornado. In order for this to happen the tornado must turn around and cross its own path. Such instances are most likely to happen with a slow-moving tornado.

Yes, pretty much always. Does it occur often? Probably not. This is the same as tornadoes hitting the same place twice, or lightning even.

Yes, they can. Living on the east coast, North Carolina, we can have both hurricanes come through and tornadoes touch down, both wreaking havoc.

Yes. A hurricane name can be re-used once every six years. If a storm is particularly bad then the name is retired from use and another name is used for future storms.

What does it mean for a hurricane to be retired?

Normally a hurricane name is re-used every six years. However, if a hurricane is particularly bad the name of that storm is not used again out of respect for the victims and to avoid confusion. The name is then replaced with another name of the same gender and with the same starting letter, for example the name Andrew, retired in 1992, was replaced with Alex in 1998.
