Each tornado is classed per state based on its starting location.

The May 2004 tornado outbreak sequence produced several tornado outbreaks between May 21 and May 31, 2004 across mostly the Midwestern and Southern United States as well as southern Ontario including three major outbreaks on May 22, May 24 and May 29–30. Overall the sequence produced 389 tornadoes which makes it one of the most productive tornado outbreak sequences in history.

The Hallam, Nebraska tornado outbreak on May 22 produced nearly 60 tornadoes across mostly Nebraska and Iowa including an F4 that tore through the town Hallam situated halfway between Lincoln and Beatrice. It was recorded as the largest tornado ever with a width of 2.5 miles (4.0 km) and one person was killed. On May 24, another tornado outbreak took place across the central United States with about 50 storms confirmed in Kansas, Illinois, Nebraska and Missouri. One person was killed in western Illinois near Winchester west of Springfield. A smaller outbreak on the May 27 produced a damaging tornado in the city of Lexington in northern Kentucky.

The Memorial Day Weekend outbreak produced one of the largest tornado outbreaks with at least from May 29, 2004 to the early morning hours of May 31, 2004. During the Memorial Day Weekend, 168 tornadoes touched down from the Midwestern United States from the Dakotas to Oklahoma eastward towards the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys from Ohio and Indiana southward towards Alabama. This outbreak is compared with the April 3–4, 1974 Super Outbreak in terms of number of tornadoes but has much fewer strong to violent tornadoes with only one violent tornado across Missouri and 16 other strong tornadoes while there were 30 violent and 66 strong tornadoes during the record-breaking event in 1974. At least five people were killed by this outbreak across two states including four in Missouri and one in Indiana but the death toll is much lower than the 315 or more deaths record during the 1974 event.

F4 W of Daykin to Palmyra Jefferson, Saline, Gage, Lancaster, Otoe 0030 54 miles (86.4 km) 1 death - This was the second-largest tornado ever recorded. At the beginning of the path near Daykin, the tornado was at F1 intensity, damaging farm outbuildings, grain bins, and trees. In Saline County, the tornado began to widen dramatically, though it remained at F0 or F1 strength until it struck the southern portion of Wilber, where it strengthened to an F2. Many trees and power lines were downed in town, and homes just south of town lost their roofs. In Gage County, the tornado rapidly intensified into a violent F4 near Clatonia, flattening and sweeping away multiple homes as it approached Hallam. The tornado was about 2½ miles wide at this point, and many grain bins, farm sheds, outbuildings, and trees were destroyed as well. The tornado then struck Hallam, damaging or destroying 95% of the town and killing one person. The tornado also toppled several hopper cars from a freight train on the west edge of town. In total 55 railroad cars were derailed. The strongest part of the tornado actually passed south of town. The tornado entered Lancaster County and passed just north of Firth, severely damaging the Firth-Norris High School and a nearby middle school. School buses were tossed and destroyed in this area. Several homes northeast of the schools were flattened at F4 intensity as well. The damage path continued northeast to near Holland, and then to 2 miles north of Panama, where the tornado weakened to an F2 and the damage path began to narrow. The track then curved more toward the north, passing just south of Bennet, where a few homes sustained F3 damage. After passing south of Bennet, the storm moved back to the northeast and began to weaken to F0 or F1 strength as it crossed into Otoe county southwest of Palmyra. The tornado finally dissipated 1 miles west southwest of Palmyra.
