2010 Tornado Season ends with lower fatalities
Date:7/6/2010

As of June 30, there were only 29 tornado-related fatalities in the United States in 2010, a near record low number due to the tornado watch and warning program that saves an estimated 1,000 lives per year in the U.S.

Wichita, KS (PRWEB) July 6, 2010 -- According to NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) June 30 marks the official end of tornado season with a near record low of 29 fatalities. The tornado watch and warning program which is managed by the NSSL, saves an estimated 1,000 lives per year in the U.S.

The 2010 tornado season was especially challenging for forecasters as tornadoes struck densely populated Detroit and Oklahoma City metro areas and crossed the entire width of Mississippi. “Absent warnings, the death toll would have been well into the hundreds. This is a remarkable scientific achievement”, stated Mike Smith, extreme weather consultant with Mike Smith Enterprises. Smith is an expert on tornado impact and author of Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather.

Kevin Kelleher, deputy director of NOAA’s NSSL says “NOAA is proud of its commitment to saving lives and property and continues to further improve its forecasts and warnings.” NSSL scientists use weather information to assist National Weather Service forecasters and federal, university, and private sector partners during tornado season.
