It's been a record setting severe weather season this year. Not because of the number of storms, but because no tornado caused a fatality in Tornado Alley, which begins in Texas and stretches North all the way up to South Dakota.
It's the first time this has happened since record keeping began in 1950. On average 52 deaths are blamed on severe weather every year. Here on the South Plains, we experienced a very active tornado season. There were at least 15 touch-downs this season, with a third of those tornadoes rated F-2 or higher.
