At least one tornado-related fatality on Saturday snapped a record streak for U.S. tornado deaths on Saturday. An EF-2 tornado killed a 79-year-old woman on Saturday afternoon in Logan County, Kentucky, the first tornado-related death since May 16th, 2017 - a record streak of 283 days that unfortunately ended this weekend. The previous record was 220 days, a streak that started in mid-2012 and lasted through January 2013. Records go back to 1950. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/967564116498919424 Better warnings, forecasts, better knowledge about how to protect life in a tornado and sheer luck are the primary reasons this streak went as long as it did. Hopefully, a newer and longer streak began on Sunday. More severe storms, with the possibility of tornadoes, are likely later this week, especially on Wednesday.
