This page documents the tornadoes and tornado outbreaks that occurred in 2007, primarily (but not entirely) in the United States. Most tornadoes form in the U.S., although some events may take place internationally, particularly in parts of neighboring southern Canada during the summer season. Some tornadoes also take place in Europe, e. g. in the United Kingdom or in Germany.

Preliminary reports suggest that there were 1,305 reported tornadoes in the U.S. (of which 1,096 were confirmed),[3] with 81 confirmed fatalities. It was the deadliest year for tornadoes in the U.S. since 1999, when 95 deaths were reported.[4] In addition, three fatalities took place in Mexico, 14 in Chad, one in South Africa, three in Vietnam, one in the Philippines, 25 in China and seven in Bangladesh for a worldwide known total of at least 135.

Notably, the system for classifying tornado damage in the United States changed from the Fujita scale to the Enhanced Fujita Scale on February 1, 2007.[5]

Total fatalities: 81

2007 started quickly in terms of tornadoes, with the first tornado fatalities taking place in the first week of January. After few other significant events in the rest of January, a deadly period took place in the latter part of the winter. Two deadly outbreaks and several other major tornado events marred February and March, especially in the southern US.

The spring was also fairly active, with several significant tornado events in April and May, including a major outbreak in the first weekend of May producing the first ever EF5 tornado (and first F5 tornado on any scale in the 21st century). While June was not as active with fewer tornadoes, it produced another F5 tornado and Canada's first such confirmed tornado.

The tropics in the Western Hemisphere produced few significant tornadoes in 2007, but Typhoon Sepat produced a deadly tornado in China. Otherwise, the summer and early fall were fairly quiet, with a few local exceptions. The most severe outbreak in the second half of the year took place in October, when the largest outbreak ever recorded in that month took place.

The year ended slowly with no major outbreaks in November or December and only a few isolated tornadoes, mostly related to larger winter storms.

Cleanup after the tornado in Dumas, Arkansas.

A moderate severe weather event and tornado outbreak took place on February 23 and 24 across the south-central United States. It was expected to have been much larger on February 23, as a moderate risk of severe weather was issued by the Storm Prediction Center for both days over large areas. The activity on February 23 was quite modest due to a late start and low dew points. The area primarily affected was the southern High Plains. Three weak tornadoes touched down in Kansas, along with one in Texas that day.[19]

Tornado activity the following day was much more significant, especially in Arkansas. An EF3 passed near the town of Strong, Arkansas, heavily damaging homes and mobile homes. A brick house was mostly destroyed, and double-wide mobile home was completely destroyed, with debris scattered up to 200 yards away. 5 people were injured.[20] An EF2 tornado struck the Mt. Olive community in Bradley County a short time later. A house suffered major damage and a mobile home was destroyed there. An elderly woman was injured in the house, and a family of five was injured in the mobile home. Three other homes had minor damage, and several sheds and outbuildings were destroyed. Thousands of trees were blown down, as were a number of power poles and power lines.[21] A second EF3 tornado formed and tore directly through the town of Dumas, where 25 businesses were destroyed, along with 19 homes. More than 65 additional homes sustained minor to moderate damage. Six mobile homes were destroyed, along with an athletic park. A community building sustained major damage, as well as a 20-unit assisted living center. An electrical substation was destroyed, leaving the area without power for several days. Numerous trees and power lines were also blown down. Farther to the northeast, in the community of Back Gate, 11 mobile homes were destroyed and 12 sustained minor damage. One house was destroyed, along with three that were damaged. This tornado injured a total of 28 people along its path.[22] After the Dumas tornado dissipated, an EF2 tornado touched down and passed north of Monticello before dissipating near Garrett Bridge. That tornado snapped hundreds of trees, damaged or destroyed several shop buildings and a barn, partially destroyed one house and damaged another.[22][23] Further south, two EF2s touched down in Louisiana. Overall, the outbreak resulted in 20 tornadoes and no fatalities.[19] Damages from the tornadoes totaled to US$48.41 million.

Extensive tornado damage in Eastern Kansas on February 28, 2007.

A large storm system spawned a significant tornado outbreak, which began February 28 in Kansas and Missouri and continued March 1 in Alabama and Georgia. On February 28, a moderate risk was issued for both days, and on March 1 a high risk was issued for western Alabama, eastern Mississippi, the Florida Panhandle and southern and central Georgia. It was the first such issuance since April 7, 2006.

On February 28, 12 tornadoes were reported, eight in Kansas and four in Missouri. One of them destroyed a house in Linn County, Kansas and the tornado associated with this was rated EF4. Structural damage was also reported near Adrian, Missouri, from a different tornado. Hail as large as baseballs were also reported.[24]

As of March 1, there were at least 53 tornadoes reported that day. Significant damage was reported near Caulfield, Missouri, and one person was killed in a mobile home there.[25] In the early afternoon, supercells became widespread across the region.

A tornado in Enterprise, Alabama heavily damaged a high school and homes while killing nine people when the roof of the school collapsed. One other person was killed in Alabama as well as nine in Georgia including six in a single tornado in Baker County.[26] A total of 34 tornadoes were confirmed during the outbreak which killed 20. This outbreak was part of a winter storm that affected the Midwest states, the Great Lakes, Quebec, Ontario, the Canadian Maritimes and the US Northeast killing an additional 19 people.

Damages from the tornadoes totaled to greater than US$580 million.

A damaging outbreak of 18 tornadoes impacted areas from southwestern Texas northward into east-central New Mexico and the Oklahoma Panhandle. At the beginning of the outbreak an EF1 tornado struck Logan, New Mexico, tossing and/or rolling about 50 manufactured homes and recreational vehicles resulting in 12 injuries.[28] Later, an EF2 tornado west of both McDonald and Tatum snapped power poles and threw a heavy water trough several hundred yards.[29] The worst tornado of the day was another destructive EF2 tornado that moved directly through Clovis, damaging or destroying over 500 homes and other structures, killing two, and injuring 33 others. This was the first tornado to result in fatalities since October 1974 and tied the tornado with another tornado in Wagon Mound on May 31, 1930 for the deadliest tornado in state history.[30] The last tornado of the day was another EF2 tornado west of Morton, Texas that destroyed irrigation systems, partially destroyed the Star Route Gin, and snapped utility poles.[31][32] Isolated severe storms refired the next day from the Texas Panhandle northward into western and north central Nebraska. Mainly hail damage occurred, but eight weak tornadoes did touch down.[33] In all, 26 tornadoes touched down, resulting in two fatalities and 45 injuries.[34]

A slow-moving system developed across the High Plains on the dry line on March 28. A moderate risk of severe weather was issued by the Storm Prediction Center as widespread severe weather, including tornadoes, were expected throughout the afternoon and evening. In all, 65 tornadoes were reported in the region, with several destructive and large tornadoes taking place in numerous communities across the region.[35] Many other severe weather reports came in, including hail as large as softballs. An EF2 tornado killed two people Beaver County, Oklahoma, an EF3 tornado killed two people in Holly, Colorado, and another EF3 tornado killed a person in Hemphill County, Texas.

The system gradually moved east on March 29, but the squall line left over from events the previous night prevented a major outbreak. Even so, three tornadoes were reported in Oklahoma, two in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, including an EF2 tornado that injured five people between Yukon and Piedmont.

The SPC had issued a moderate risk again for March 30 and March 31 over portions of southern Texas. Several tornadoes were reported across the Midwest and Southern Plains. Near, Halletsville, four people were injured when their mobile home was obliterated by a low-end EF2 tornado. An EF0 tornado also hit midtown St. Louis, causing damage to roofs, trees and signs including parts of a billboard sign that flew over and blocked Interstate 64, where two people were injured by flying debris.[36] In all, the outbreak produced 80 tornadoes, killing five people and injuring 26 others.

Another severe weather outbreak took place on April 3. However, damaging hail and wind were the primary effects, although 10 tornadoes were reported in Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas and Alabama. Nearly 400 reports of hail were reported throughout the day with the majority occurring during the afternoon hours in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas and Kentucky with also reports of golf ball to baseball size hail. The majority of the wind reports were from a bow echo that developed across central Kentucky and Tennessee during the evening hours and causing damage to trees, power lines, antennas and trailers. A total of 10 tornadoes were confirmed; all of them were EF0 or EF1. No fatalities were reported, but several people were injured.[37][38]

Damages from the tornadoes totaled to US$2.73 million.

A severe weather outbreak occurred across the eastern central states on April 11, exactly 42 years after the deadly 1965 Palm Sunday tornado outbreak. The system spanned from Illinois and Indiana down to the southern states spawning seven tornadoes, four in Indiana (two EF0, one EF1 and one EF2 [39]) and 3 in Alabama (all rated EF1[40]). The system also created damaging winds and a great amount of hail.[41]

On April 13, severe weather developed across the Southern Plains, with the first storms affecting north-central Texas. The Storm Prediction Center issued a moderate risk of severe weather for April 13 over portions of North Central, Northeast Texas, Southern Arkansas and Northern Louisiana.[42] It was also issued for the central Gulf Coast for April 14. During the mid-afternoon hours, the moderate risk was upgraded to a high risk for the second time in 2007.[43] In the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, there a couple of tornadoes throughout the region. Hail as large as 3.25 inches (8.3 cm) and wind gusts up to 80 miles per hour (130 km/h) were reported as well.[44] Two tornadoes, an EF0 and an EF1 were later confirmed in Tarrant County near Fort Worth while another EF0 was confirmed in Dallas County and a third EF0 in Rockwall County. The EF1 in Tarrant County resulted in a fatality.[45] The severe weather caused cancellation of qualifying for the 2007 Samsung 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, forcing the field to be established via owner's points. Nonetheless, the overall activity was much lower than expected and the high risk busted.

For April 14, the Storm Prediction Center issued a moderate risk of severe weather for southern Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and northwestern Florida. Several more scattered tornadoes were reported.

While most of the activity on April 15 was straight-line winds, an isolated EF3 tornado touched down in Sumter County, South Carolina that morning. Several mobile homes were demolished and one person was killed, with three injured. Two other tornadoes were later confirmed in South Carolina: an EF1 in Lee County and an EF0 in Orangeburg County. Several tornadoes also affected Georgia where at least 8 tornadoes and three injuries were documented.[46][47]

An eight-day outbreak of tornado activity struck a large portion of the United States, with an additional violent tornado in Mexico. The event started on April 20, when two isolated, but strong tornadoes touched down in south central Nebraska. An EF3 tornado struck several farms in rural Frontier and Lincoln counties, injuring two in the latter county.[48][49] The same supercell than produced a large, wedge EF2 tornado that blew several vehicles and semis off of Interstate 80 near Gothenburg, injuring nine people, before causing more damage to farms in rural Dawson and Custer counties.[50][51][52] More severe weather occurred the next day from the Texas Panhandle northward to northeastern Colorado northeastward into Minnesota. Five EF2 tornadoes touched down in the Texas Panhandle, causing severe damage along there paths. The towns of Olton, Cactus, and Tulia were especially hit hard, and 17 people were injured.[53] Only isolated severe weather activity occurred on April 22 with only one tornado being confirmed.[54]

Severe weather outbreaks occurred over the next two days with a moderate risk being issued for April 23 and a rare high risk issued for April 24. Although most of the tornadoes that occurred remained over open terrain, several destructive tornadoes did touch down, especially on April 24. On that day, a tornadic thunderstorm developed in northeast Coahuila, Mexico and produced a violent F4 tornado that killed seven people in Piedras Negras. The same cell than crossed the international border into the United States and produced another deadly tornado that caused EF3 damage in Eagle Pass, Texas, killing three more people.[55] Isolated tornadic activity occurred on April 25, but a non-tornadic fatality occurred in Lake Village, Arkansas when 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) winds capsized a boat on Lake Chicot.[56] More tornadoes occurred on April 26-27. Although they were all weak in nature, all but one of them caused minor to moderate damage. The worst of these tornadoes was an EF1 tornado in New Tazewell, Tennessee that damaged or destroyed mobile homes while also damaging other homes and trees, injuring seven people.[57][58]

In all, 93 tornadoes touched down, with 10 tornadic fatalities, one non-tornadic fatality, and at least 37 injuries being confirmed.

Tornado watches were spread throughout Texas. However, the supercells redeveloped into a hybrid derecho across Central and North Texas that evening, stretching from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to south of Waco and extending eastward to about Longview. Widespread wind damage with winds in excess of 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) were reported.[60] In the Metroplex, more than 300,000 customers lost power as a result of the high winds. Some of the most severe damage included the loss of a roof at an apartment complex, extensive tree and power line damage (with many trees crashing into houses) and flipped tractor-trailers and mobile homes.[61] However, no fatalities were reported.

A low pressure system moved across much of central and eastern North America starting on June 6 in the central Plains and into the Mississippi Valley, Great Lakes region and eventually the Northeast over the following few days. On June 4, the Storm Prediction Center issued a moderate risk of severe weather for June 6, only the fourth such issuance for a day three outlook. On the morning of June 5, the Storm Prediction Center continued the moderate risk for June 6 and issued a moderate risk for June 7 over much of the Upper Midwest, making it the fifth time a moderate risk has been issued on day 3. Both were forwarded to days 1 and 2, respectively, on June 6.[42][83]

On June 6, there were two distinct threats forecast. The central Plains were expected to see a large tornado outbreak potentially, particularly in Nebraska and the Dakotas close to the dry line, should the cap have broken in the atmosphere in the afternoon hours. In the evening and overnight hours, a major derecho with destructive winds and some scattered tornadoes were possible farther east, particularly in the eastern Dakotas, western Minnesota and western Iowa.[76] However, that basically busted as little severe weather happened as the cap held up in most areas. Only five tornadoes and scattered wind reports took place.[84]

Tornado damage from the EF3 Wisconsin tornado in 2010 at WIS 32.

A high risk of severe storms was issued for June 7 for the Upper Midwest, from about the Quad Cities north to Lake Superior. Widespread tornadoes and destructive downburst winds were possible.[76] A moderate risk was issued for portions of Minnesota, Michigan and Illinois while a slight risk was issued south towards Oklahoma, which was then upgraded to a moderate risk late in the day. Environment Canada also issued a risk of severe thunderstorms with possible tornadoes for all of northwestern Ontario and a severe weather watch was issued early Thursday morning from the Manitoba border towards the north shore of Lake Superior[74][85]

There were 14 tornado reports that day. The most serious damage was near Mosinee, Wisconsin, where a house was heavily damaged by an EF2 tornado, and in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin where a weak tornado touched down in or near the downtown area, along with softball sized hail.[86] However, farther south, the cap has held in place once again, restricting activity to the northern areas.[87]

The worst event on June 7 was an EF3 tornado that touched down in central Wisconsin. It was on the ground for 40 miles (64 km) while passing through Shawano, Menominee, Langlade, and Oconto counties. It was up to 34 mile (1.2 km) wide at times and took down 14,000 acres (57 km2) of forest, damaging dozens of buildings.[86]

On June 8, Environment Canada issued a moderate risk of severe thunderstorms for Eastern Ontario with the risk of tornadoes. A slight risk was issued for most of Southern and Northeastern Ontario. The slight risk zone extends from southern Quebec, near Montreal into northern Mexico [74][76] During the noon hours, the moderate risk zone was extended further south to includes portions of western New York, western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, northern Kentucky, southeastern Indiana, most of Ohio and larger portions of southern Ontario from Windsor to eastern Ontario. It turned out to be a long squall line though, and while there was wind damage from winds as strong as 85 miles per hour (137 km/h) stretching from the Tennessee Valley north to almost Hudson Bay, there were only two tornadoes, one near Brantford southwest of Toronto and the other near Bancroft north of Peterborough, Ontario.[74][88]

June 7 (Vietnam)[edit]

A strong, long-track tornado damaged dozens of buildings in multiple villages in Hung Ha district, Thái Bình province, northern Vietnam, killing one person.[89]

June 13 (Vietnam)[edit]

A destructive tornado struck the Trieu Son District in Thanh Hóa Province of central Vietnam, killing two people and heavily damaging nearly 500 houses.[90]

A moderate risk of severe thunderstorms was issued by the Storm Prediction Center for portions of eastern Iowa during the late afternoon of June 21. Seven tornadoes were reported across the Plains as a large cluster of storms moved eastward. Several reports of large hail exceeding golf ball size was reported.[76][91] The strongest tornado took place in Norwalk, Iowa, where an EF2 tornado heavily damaged homes.[92]

On June 22, more severe storms developed, this time primarily farther north. The most intense weather was across southern Manitoba where tornadoes were reported. The most severe damage was around Elie, Manitoba where several houses were flattened or swept away and numerous others damaged or destroyed. A flour mill was also destroyed and several trucks were overturned on Highway 1. The tornado path was 3.7 miles (6.0 km) long, and was initially rated as an F4 on the Fujita Scale before detailed video debris analysis warranted an upgrade to F5 making it the first such tornado in Canada.[93] Another tornado hit McHenry County, North Dakota; it was an EF1 with moderate damage, mainly to trees and farm buildings.[94]

More tornadoes occurred on June 23. A volatile setup for severe thunderstorms was realized in far southeast Saskatchewan by late afternoon and resulted in two long lived supercells that moved southeast into southwest Manitoba and eventually far northeast North Dakota by nightfall. At east five tornadoes were reported, including a significant wedge tornado near Pipestone, Manitoba that was rated F3 on the Fujita scale after inflicting substantial damage to some rural homes.

June 26 (Ontario)[edit]

A single tornado hit Ignace, Ontario in the north-west part of the province overturning boats, causing damage to trees and property as well as injuring one person.[95]

July[edit]

55 tornadoes were reported in the U.S. in July, however 69 were confirmed.

July 3 (China)[edit]

A deadly and destructive tornado in Eastern China killed 14 people and injured 196 others.[96] Three villages in the province of Anhui were particularly hard hit by the storm. It was estimated to have touched down around 2:50 pm local time and lifted around 6:00 pm local time, making it one of the longest-lived tornadoes ever recorded at roughly 3 hours and 10 minutes in duration. Along the tornado's path, 12,391 homes were destroyed and 3,180 were damaged. At least 30,000 people were affected by the tornado and damages were estimated at ¥55 million (US$7.2 million).[97] Local news reports referred to the tornado as the worst in nearly 50 years in China. The Chinese Government reported that the tornado packed winds of at least 100 km/h (60 mph), equivalent to an F1 tornado.[98]

July 4–5 (New Zealand)[edit]

An outbreak of tornadoes occurred across New Zealand's North Island. Six were reported in the city of New Plymouth, Taranaki, devastating many houses and part of the Central Business District. Whakatane, Tauranga, and Auckland were also affected by tornadoes.[99][100]

July 8 (Ontario)[edit]

An F1 tornado near Mildmay, Ontario destroyed a large implementation shed, reportedly hurling debris 1.5 km away and moving 50 kg drums. Another tornado was reported in the area, but it was not confirmed.

On the evening of July 15, several supercells formed across the Dakotas. Eight tornadoes were confirmed; five in North Dakota and one in South Dakota. Among them were three EF2 tornadoes, which did significant damage to a number of farm properties across the region. Widespread straight-line wind damage was also reported in the area. However, no one was injured. Other tornadoes were also confirmed earlier in the day in Texas, North Carolina, and Maine.[101]

July 19 (Ireland)[edit]

An EF1 tornado touched down in the Belfast Lough area of Northern Ireland. This was the third tornado in the area in the last six months.

July 20 (Poland)[edit]

An F3 tornado touched down near Częstochowa, Poland, causing damage to over 250 buildings, many with roofs blown out, some with brick walls partially collapsed.

July 30 (Philippines)[edit]

Around 4 pm local time on July 30, a strong tornado struck three barangays, injuring two people, destroyed two homes and damaged 12 others. The mayor of the affected region provided financial assistance to the displaced families following the tornado.[102]

An EF2 tornado struck New York City at 6:30 am EDT (10:30 UTC) on August 8. The hardest-hit area was the Bay Ridge area of Brooklyn, where many trees—as much as 40% of the trees in Sunset Park were knocked down and several homes and buildings lost part of their roofs. A second tornado was also confirmed just east of the track of the first tornado and rated as a strong EF1 where additional roofs of homes were damaged. The Flatbush neighborhood, as well as areas on Staten Island, were also affected.[103][104]

Accompanying the tornadoes was a storm which dumped several inches of rain on the city in a few hours, resulting in flooding which effectively shut down the mass transit system. Several people were injured by the tornado, and one person died from the associated flooding. The tornado was the first to hit Brooklyn since 1950 when modern record-keeping began.[105]

August 10 (Philippines)[edit]

A destructive tornado struck Zambales, Philippines, heavily damaging or destroying several homes and killing one person.[106]

August 19 (Typhoon Sepat)[edit]

A tornado spawned by Typhoon Sepat touched down in Zhejiang Province, killing 13 people and injuring at least 62 others.[107][108] More than 1,100 buildings were destroyed and 22,700 hectares of crops were damaged by the tornado.[109][110] The tornado touched down around 11:30 pm local time near Wenzhou City. The half-mile (800 m) wide tornado tracked for 5 mi (8 km) before dissipating. Eight of the 62 people who were injured sustained serious injuries. Damages from the tornado were estimated at 138.35 million yuan (US$18.  million).[111]

August 22 (Philippines)[edit]

During the evening of August 22, a strong tornado struck the town of Bulacan. The tornado destroyed 44 homes and damaged 21 others while injuring two people. Four days after the tornado, the local governments provided roofing materials to the affected homes.[112]

A large derecho with winds up to 100 mph (160 km/h) did significant damage in the Chicago area and in western Michigan. Embedded in the derecho was an EF1 tornado that touched down in Winfield, Illinois in DuPage County.[113] An EF0 tornado was spotted in Sanilac County, Michigan around 5:21 pm EDT on August 23 after the hot muggy day caused convection east of an oncoming (eastbound) cold front. Another unconfirmed tornado was spotted tracking from Livonia, Michigan to Redford Township, Michigan. The National Weather Service office in Grand Rapids, Michigan also confirmed that an EF1 tornadoes hit rural Montcalm County near Cedar Lake.[114] Non-tornadic severe thunderstorms also did serious damage in Berrien, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, and Allegan counties.

On August 24, following conditions similar to the previous day, an EF3 tornado with winds near 140 mph (230 km/h) formed two miles (3 km) north of Charlotte, Michigan, doing severe damage along Vermontville Highway, passing through Potterville, and crossing I-69 in Eaton County before dissipating as it approached Dimondale, touching down around 4:25 pm EDT and leaving a damage path varying from 200 yards (200 m) to 300 yards (300 m) wide and 6.5 miles (10.5 km) long.[115] Around 4:55 pm EDT, the same storm produced an EF1 tornado which touched down at the intersection of Waverly Road and M-99 in southeastern Lansing, extending across I-96, towards the intersections of Aurelius Road with Jolly Road and Dunkel Road before finally dissipating near the Jolly Road interchange on I-496.[116]

Other storms in the same system later produced tornadoes in the NWS Detroit/Pontiac office coverage area. The most powerful one was a strong EF2 tornado that touched down in Cohoctah Township, Livingston County, Michigan at around 5:30 pm EDT. Remaining on the ground for 26 miles (42 km), with an average track width of 200 yards (200 m) and a maximum track width of 0.25 mi (0.40 km) in the city of Fenton, Genesee County, the funnel continued through Deerfield Township and northwestern Tyrone Township before entering Genesee County and the city of Fenton, where it caused the partial collapse of "a large retail structure" at the intersection of Owen Road and US-23. It then passed on into Holly, in Oakland County before dissipating into straight-line winds east of Holly.[117][118]

Three other tornadoes were confirmed by damage surveys. An EF0 tornado touched down briefly (track length of 0.25 miles (0.40 km)) near the intersection of Durand Road and M-21 in eastern Shiawassee County, Michigan at around 5:23 pm EDT, while another EF0 tornado touched down for 3 miles (4.8 km) in Salem Township, Washtenaw County at around 6:02 pm EDT.[119] Additionally, an EF1 tornado struck in Hadley Township, Lapeer County, at around 6:16 pm EDT, leaving a 4-mile-long (6.4 km) damage path.[117][120] Numerous reports of straight-line wind damage were also received throughout the entire NWS Detroit/Pontiac coverage area. The storms in this system were part of the same system that sat over the Midwest for almost a week, bringing pouring rain at first and then the severe weather later in the week. This storm system and stationary front also caused severe flooding in Ohio.[121]

August 23 (Colombia)[edit]

A rare tornado occurred in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá, and was caught on tape. There were no immediate word on any damage or injuries.[122] Much of western Colombia lies along the Andes mountain chain which limits tornado activity in that region. However, in June 2001 a tornado killed six people and injured 350 in the town of Barranquillia in extreme northern Colombia.[123]

EF4 damage to a construction company in Northwood, North Dakota.

A localized but damaging tornado outbreak produced 11 tornadoes in eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota on the evening of August 26.[124] The strongest event of the outbreak was a large, rain-wrapped EF4 wedge tornado that devastated the town of Northwood, North Dakota. This multiple-vortex tornado began to the southwest of town, snapping numerous trees and striking the Northwood Muni-Vince Airport at EF1 strength, where several planes were damaged. A metal storage building and a small airplane hangar were reduced to bare slabs at that location. The tornado grew to nearly 1-mile-wide (1.6 km) and reached EF3 strength as it struck Northwood directly. Of the roughly 460 homes in Northwood, 90% of them sustained some type of damage. The local health center, bank, fire station, school, supermarket, and grain elevator were all damaged. Near the grain elevator, several rail cars were knocked off the tracks. Hundreds of trees were snapped, uprooted, or damaged throughout town, and one person was killed in a mobile home park that was destroyed at the north edge of town. A small area of EF4 damage was noted as the tornado exited at the northeast corner of town. An agricultural company, a construction company, and a car dealership were completely destroyed in this area. The construction company was entirely flattened, with steel beams twisted and thrown into nearby fields. A large metal storage tank that originated in this area was found 1.5 miles (2.4 km) away in a corn field. Numerous vehicles were thrown hundreds of yards from the car dealership, many of which were mangled beyond recognition. Farm fields in this area were heavily scoured, and mature corn stalks in one field were snapped at the base and flattened to the ground, with husked ears of corn found scattered about. EF1 damage was observed further to the northeast before the tornado dissipated. In addition to the fatality, 18 others were injured in Northwood.[125][126] An EF2 tornado touched down near Reynolds, North Dakota, snapping numerous trees near the Red River, and flattening a flag pole and an antique windmill to the ground. The tornado crossed into Minnesota, where a quonset hut and a pole shed were destroyed before the tornado dissipated near Eldred.[127] Later that evening, a large EF3 tornado passed near Rugh Lake, North Dakota, destroying garages and outbuildings on three farms, tossing grain bins, and snapping numerous trees. Gravel roads were deeply scarred by flying debris, five bison were killed, and two heavy combines were thrown and smashed to pieces by the tornado.[128] Eight other weak tornadoes occurred that evening as well.[126][129][130]

The remnants of Hurricane Humberto, which made landfall west of the Texas/Louisiana border on September 13, produced several clusters of thunderstorms, which spawned at least eight confirmed tornadoes (and several more unconfirmed reports) across portions of Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia, along with widespread straight-line wind damage. In Clemmons, North Carolina, an EF0 tornado damaged several homes, while an unconfirmed tornado significantly damaged a nursing home in Fuquay-Varina forcing the evacuation due to a fire in an electrical boxes. Counties affected in North Carolina included Wake, Johnston and Harnett. There were no injuries from any of the tornadoes. Eight of the tornadoes were EF0 while two were rated EF1.[131][132]

The hardest-hit community was Eustis, Florida which was hit directly by a destructive EF1 tornado. Seven homes were destroyed, 27 other homes received major damage, and another 81 homes reported minor damage. Looting was reported in the community after the tornado hit.[133] Despite the heavy damage, there were no causalities caused by the tornado.[134] A second EF1 tornado was also confirmed in Florida while EF0 tornadoes were also confirmed in Georgia and Alabama.[135]

A sharp cold front with low-topped supercells triggered a moderate outbreak of tornadoes across a portion of the Central United States, particularly in the central Mississippi Valley. At least 15 tornadoes were reported, resulting in at least two injuries and scattered reports of damage, including structural damage to buildings.[140] One of first tornadoes of the outbreak was a brief EF1 tornado that moved directly through Downtown Des Moines, Iowa, snapping power lines and power poles and flipping vehicles along Mulberry Street.[141] Shortly after that a skipping EF2 tornado, the strongest tornado of the outbreak, began near Woodland, Missouri and moved east-northeastward to near North Fork. It first damaged trees and heavily damaged a home before later destroying a mobile home. (critically injuring one elderly occupant).[138][142] Later, an EF1 tornado, touched down near Woodland and moved northeastward through the southern part of Palmyra. Several structures suffered minor to heavy damage, trees were damaged, and a semi trailer was tossed into two other trailers. A car on U.S. 61 was also flipped twice, injuring the driver.[143] Around the same time, an EF0 tornado touched down and moved through Palmyra itself, causing minor damage to trees, power lines, and several structures.[144] Other weak tornadoes were also confirmed for the rest across the region for the rest of the day, including a brief anti-cyclonic EF0 tornado southeast of Bussey, Iowa.[145][146]

October 4 (Spain)[edit]

A large, destructive supercell storm impacted the Balearic Islands, most specifically the island of Majorca where a tornado was documented in the capital city, Palma de Mallorca. This storm caused considerable damage in many areas of the city and the island.[147]

October 10 (Bangladesh)[edit]

A tornado damaged 10 houses in Barek Tila, a village in the Sunamganj District of northern Bangladesh, injuring 25 people. Another tornado also struck north-central Jamalpur District, damaging 500 homes and 200 hectares (2.0 km2) of sugarcane.[148]

Tornado damage in Nappanee, Indiana on October 18, 2007.

A complex storm system, involving a deepening low pressure area, a tropical low and a series of fronts, developed across the central United States.[149] The SPC forecast a potential severe weather event, possibly a major outbreak, beginning October 17 across much of central and eastern North America. A moderate risk of severe storms was issued for October 17 across parts of the central U.S. Some activity developed early in the morning of October 17, although no tornadoes were reported. The main supercell activity began that afternoon across a wide swath from Missouri south to Louisiana and west to Oklahoma. At least 16 tornadoes were reported and seven confirmed, with damage in Franklinton, Louisiana from an EF1 tornado as well as damage in Mount Vernon, Missouri from an EF2 tornado. In addition, KTUL has reported at least 40 people were injured in Tulsa at Oktoberfest when thunderstorm winds ripped through the area.[150] The activity turned deadly overnight as an isolated tornado developed in the overnight hours near Paris, Missouri. Two people were killed when a high-end EF2 tornado hit a mobile home southeast of Granville.[151]

More severe weather was expected on October 18 across the Ohio Valley and the Great Lakes region. Another moderate risk was issued with tornadoes being the main threat. Tornadoes were also possible across the Southern US, particularly the Gulf Coast. The activity began quickly in the southern threat area, and an EF1 tornado took place in the downtown area of Pensacola, Florida. Damage was reported to many buildings in the downtown core, as well as a section of Cordova Mall. Electricity was cut in the area. No injuries were reported.[152] In total, 46 tornadoes were confirmed. The hardest-hit state was Kentucky, where many tornadic supercells formed between Paducah and Louisville, and WFIE has reported many injuries and possible fatalities in numerous communities. At least one person was confirmed dead in Owensboro, Kentucky. However, the National Weather Service[153] has only confirmed minor injuries. A high-end EF3 tornado struck Nappanee, Indiana; a tornado emergency was declared there. One person was confirmed dead in Kalkaska, Michigan following an EF2 tornado there while two other people were killed in Ingham County in the Lansing area by another EF2 tornado that caused extensive damage in the Williamston area. While early indications had severe weather continuing into October 19, the lack of sunshine prevented initiation even though temperatures in the 80s Fahrenheit were common as far north as southeastern Ontario and southwestern Quebec.

October 26 (Australia)[edit]

A spectacular multiple-vortex tornado developed near the town of Dunoon, near the City of Lismore, New South Wales, Australia. The tornado developed from a supercell at approximately 4pm damaging a power sub-station then going on to Dunoon where it ripped the wall of a church and damaged the roofs and walls of about 20 houses. The tornado was captured on film by both a local[154] and Australian stormchaser Jimmy Deguara and estimated to be at least an EF1 in strength.[155][156]

November[edit]

Seven tornadoes were reported in the U.S. in November, all of which were confirmed.

November 6 (Colombia)[edit]

While tornado occurrences are very rare, the Colombian capital Bogotá was hit by its second tornado of the year. The cyclone which was also caught on tape, tore up the roof of a car dealership and additional scattered damage. No injuries or deaths were reported during the tornado event. The area was hit with extensive severe weather over the past few days which included torrential rains that caused significant flooding across the region as well as hail and wind. Hundreds of motorists were stranding on area roads due to the extensive amounts of hail and rain.[157][158]

A complex weather system developed in mid-December, involving the merging of the remnants of Tropical Storm Olga with a cold front associated with a major winter storm to the north over the Northeast and Midwest. As a result, the first severe weather episode in more than a month in the US produced several tornadoes across the Deep South, particularly southern Georgia and northern and central Florida, late on December 15 and early on December 16. At least 12 tornadoes were reported across the region, with significant damage in several communities. In addition, straight line wind damage has also been reported across the region. One of the more notable tornadoes, an EF1 tornado, hit the Pasco County Jail, causing significant damage to the facility. No one was injured there.[162] The strongest was an EF2 tornado near Lothair, Georgia.[163] One person was killed near Ashburn, Georgia, when his eighteen-wheeler was thrown off I-75 by an EF1 tornado.[164]
