Tornado Statistic

Since they started classifying tornados back in 1950, the East Coast -- that stretch of land between St. John, Nova Scotia, and Key West, Florida -- has never had an F-5 tornado. If the NWS confirms the preliminary report, Sunday's tornado that went through the area could be the East Coast's first!

There were only 51 F-5 tornadoes in all of the US since 1950. Only 2% of all tornadoes are this powerful.
