At least 34 different tornadoes have been confirmed from Monday and Tuesday’s severe weather outbreak.

After several storm surveys were conducted by nine different National Weather Service offices, a total of 34 tornadoes were confirmed to have taken place from this week’s deadly tornado outbreak. That 34 tornado figure includes six EF-3s, eight EF-2s, 12 EF-1s and eight EF-0 tornadoes.

There may be additional tornadoes added to this week’s total in future surveys by the National Weather Service. That said, these tornado figures are likely close to the final total.

Three fatalities were confirmed from Monday’s tornadoes. Two people were killed in Lawrence County, Alabama by an EF-2 tornado, and one person was killed near DeRidder, Louisiana by an EF-3 twister.

Chris doesn't remember a time when that he didn't love the weather. When he was five years old, he wrote his first words, "Partly cloudy", in Ms. Benn's kindergarten class. According to Chris, it's been a love affair ever since, from teaching himself how to read forecast models at age 12, to landing at WeatherNation. Growing up in Greenwich, Connecticut, he started to go after his lifelong drea... Load Morem of becoming a meteorologist by predicting whether or not there would be snow days - turning him into Greenwich High School's "defacto weatherman". He turned that snow day-predicting website into a front page story a local newspaper, which in turn earned him a look at WABC-TV in New York, where Chris did the weather live on-air at the age of 16. He attended Boston University, where he continued being a "weather nerd", performing weather updates on the campus radio and TV stations, and doing the daily forecasts for the student newspaper. Following his studies at BU, Chris worked at Mile High Sports and ESPN Denver for four years while pursuing his certification in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. Chris is a huge sports fan, rooting for the Rockies, Nuggets, Broncos, Avalanche and UConn. He frequently find links between sports and weather, including an investigative analysis he did in 2013, finding trends between Peyton Manning's play and game time temperature (he doesn't like the cold). Chris also enjoys running, playing any sport, socializing and periodically overeating at all-you-can-eat buffets.
