Top U.S. tornado videos of 2014
2014 was not your normal year when it comes to tornadoes. In fact, early counts put it down there — hand-in-hand with 2012 and 2013 — among the least active on record.
On the whole, that’s a good thing for those who may face threats from these beasts of nature, though several high-impact events still did unfortunately occur.
Despite the lack of numbers, 2014 will be remembered for a long time to come, largely thanks to three days in June. Additional memorable tornadoes were peppered throughout the year.

Disagree? We miss something? Let us know.
Note: There is some potential for tornadoes in the South over the next week or so. Should any of that materialize and qualify, we will edit to add video.
