Extreme Weather: Long-Term U.S. Tornado Climatology Report

I've added a new report to the Extreme Weather, Natural Disaster, Tornado, Weather Warning, Climate Change Maps, GIS Shapefiles & Resources. The Long-Term U.S. Tornado Climatology Report comes from NOAA/NCDC.

The report is over 10 years old, but it's interesting that a lot of the tornado incidents agreed with the forecasts they created at the time. Now in 2012 it seems that forecasting the future of tornadoes or any extreme weather with any degree of accuracy is becoming increasingly difficult.
