Several Tornadoes Confirmed From Sunday’s Severe Weather

6 Nov 2017, 2:00 pm

A busy day of tornadoes and severe weather on Sunday produced at least eight tornadoes, according to preliminary information from the National Weather Service (NWS).

Eight people were injured in an EF-2 tornado that moved through the northwest Ohio town of Celina, but none of the injuries are considered to be life-threatening. Extensive damage in Celina and nearby Wabash was reported from the twister, which was estimated to have wind speeds in excess of 130 miles-per-hour (MPH) with it as it moved through on Sunday afternoon.

The tornadoes were all part of large area of severe weather that rocked the Midwest on Sunday.

Approximately 55 tornadoes strike the United States on average during November, according to official statistics from the Storm Prediction Center (SPC). Tornadoes in November aren’t as common as during peak tornado season in April, May and June, however, a so-called secondary season can lead to severe weather this time of year as cold air filtering in from the north can clash with warm, humid and unstable air originating out of the Gulf of Mexico.

Some storm surveys were still being completed as of Monday afternoon, meaning there will likely be more tornadoes confirmed through mid-week.
