2014 tornadoes added

On May 7, 2015 the Tornado History Project added tornadoes for the 2014 calendar year. Thanks again to the Storm Prediction Center for compiling and publishing the raw data.

There were 887 886 confirmed tornadoes in 2014, which continues a downward trend started in 2012 when 940 tornadoes were confirmed, down from 1691 1692 tornadoes in 2011. 2013 saw 906 907 tornadoes.

The total number of tornadoes mapped on this site (covering the period 1950-2014) is now just short of 59,000.
