Top U.S. tornado videos of 2017

2017 was a big year for tornado numbers. It started early with several tornado outbreaks in January and February. It stayed at an above average pace through spring. Although the heart of peak season was not necessarily ideal for storm chasers, tornadoes continued to come at a fairly regular pace into summer. A big hurricane season threw a whole bunch more our way as several of those storms made landfall.

Over the final few months of 2017, activity was relatively sparse, but a few memorable tornadoes still happened. Despite a relatively tranquil end, 2017 will go down as a year that’s above average overall, and it certainly had its fair share of breathtaking twisters.

Past years: 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016
