"We're not in Kansas anymore"


What was viewed as a historically quiet tornado season, quickly took a turn for the worse, and we still have yet to clear the danger zone.

According to an article in NBC News, April and May have a tendency to be the busiest time of year for twisters.

Up until Sunday, the U.S. had a remarkably low number of tornadoes in 2014, recording the lowest number since reliable records using modern statistical methods began in 1950.

But things took a turn for the worse Sunday, with the death toll at 38 people since then.

Now that tornado season is moving into its peak season, RealtyTrac complied a list of the 7 worst cities to be in for tornados.

7. Tulsa, Okla.

Tulsa’s population sits just under 400,000. The city recorded a tornado destruction path of 851.42 and a high tornado risk.

6. Detroit, Mich.


As the city located furthest north on the list, Detroit also boasts the largest population, with just over 700,000 people. Detroit has a DPI of 966.06 and a high tornado risk.

5. Toledo, Ohio

With 287,208 people, Toledo posted a 989.65 DPI and high tornado risk.

4. Lincoln, Neb.

Lincoln’s DPI came in just over 1,000 at 1,111.07, with the city recording a population of 287,208 and a high tornado risk.  

3. Fayetteville, Ark.

Breaking into the category of very high tornado risk, Fayetteville has a population of just over 200,000 and a DPI of 1,290.99.

2. Oklahoma City, Okla.

While just a few hours away from Tulsa, the capital of Oklahoma takes the number two spot with a DPI of 1522 and a very high tornado risk. Oklahoma City has a population of just under 600,000 people.  

1. Birmingham, Ala.


It is no surprise Birmingham takes the number-one spot for the highest tornado risk. With a population just over 200,000, the city’s DPI is a over 1,000 points higher than Oklahoma City, recording a DPI of 2878.52 and a very high tornado risk.
