2016 Data Added

2016 year data has been added to the Tornado History Project. 977 976* tornadoes were confirmed in 2016, well down from the 1176 reported in 2015.

Many readers have asked why the annual update was delayed this year. The answer is that the Storm Prediction Center (the data source, as noted in the FAQ) released the data later than usual. As usual, the data was added here within a couple weeks of being released.

* 977 tornadoes were initially reported by the SPC for 2016, but the number was revised in later updates.
