The year is halfway done. And yet, The Weather Channel has already declared 2020 to be one of the deadliest tornado years in a decade!
As of now, 489 tornadoes have made a downfall in the U.S, with over 70 casualties reported. Four of those over 70 casualties resulted from tornadoes that were rated between EF2 and EF4.
Another factor that has contributed to loss of life is the occurrence of deadly tornadoes struck during the night. And since more people are sheltering in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more likely that this will increase the death toll in the future.
That is why we are urging people in tornado-prone areas such as Fort Worth, Dallas, and other regions of Texas to take the right step and invest in a tornado shelter safe room!
