It seems to me that the Midwest gets more tornadoes than anywhere else. Does anyone know why that part of the country gets more tornadoes than anywhere else? It is sad what happened in Kansas and Texas recently and probably would be scared to live in the Midwest. My deepest sympathies to those who died and to those who lost a loved one.
