Deadly Tropical Storm Lee rages ashore, spawning spin off tornadoes, wrecking homes and causing at least two deaths
More than a dozen tornado sightings were reported, and tornado warnings were in effect for portions of Baldwin and Mobile counties in southwest Alabama and Greene, Jasper, Perry and Wayne counties in southern Mississippi, according to the National Weather Service.
On Sunday night, the National Hurricane Center said Lee’s center was about 55 miles (90 kilometers) west-northwest of McComb, Mississippi and moving east-northeast at 7 mph (11 kph).
Weather officials have not confirmed any tornadoes touching down in the area but are tracking at least three twisters and funnel clouds near Mobile, Alabama, and central Mississippi near Hattiesburg.
Tornado watches stretched from southeast Mississippi, through a dozen counties in southwest Alabama and several more in the Florida Panhandle. Tornado watches also reached into southwest Georgia on Sunday afternoon.
Wet conditions associated with Tropical Storm Lee’s landfall appeared to be a factor in an early-morning car wreck in Mobile, Alabama, that killed one man and left several others injured, authorities said.
The single-vehicle crash around 4am local time Sunday killed Dataurius Nurell Parker of Lucedale, Mississippi, and injured four passengers.
Mobile police investigators said none were wearing seat belts and believed wet conditions contributed to Parker losing control of the car and striking a utility pole.
An unidentified juvenile drowned late Sunday afternoon in choppy surf east of Fort Morgan, Alabama.
Baldwin County Sheriff’s investigators determined two juveniles were swept out into the surf. The youth’s mother attempted a rescue attempt and was caught in the surf herself, according to a press release.
The mother and second juvenile were rescued, but the search for the first youth was suspended on Sunday evening.
On Saturday, authorities said a Texas man drowned when he lost his boogie board in the choppy water off a Galveston beach. His body was recovered about 150 yards from the beach a few hours later.
Numerous tornado warnings were issued in south Mississippi on Sunday as Tropical Storm Lee continued to come ashore.
Rupert Lacy, the emergency management director in coastal Harrison County, said at least five homes were damaged in Saucier. There were no immediate reports of injuries there.
Lacy said a man in Harrison County was taken to a hospital for injuries sustained when lightning traveled through a phone line. He was expected to survive.
Weather officials were assessing the damage reported from another tornado which touched down in the Gulfport, Mississippi area just after midnight on Sunday.Several people were sent to area hospitals for treatment of minor injuries. Officials described the damage to homes as minor.’We don’t have a total number of homes damaged yet, but a (national) weather service assessment team is coming to check it out,’ Mr Lacy said.Emergency management officials in Mobile County, Alabama, also confirmed a tornado touched down in the southern part of that county early on Sunday morning, downing power lines and trees. No injuries have been reported.
In Mobile on Sunday, sunny skies and brisk winds gave the appearance of calm as the heaviest rains remained to the west. – Mail Online
Many question how Yahweh would transform mankind’s destructiveness on this planet back to a paradise. It is in the process. Both halves closely connected, and one will burn away giving new birth to the one that will sustain humankind in the future.
The earth was made to last forever. It will. But there will be a new miraculous birth of the earth, making it NEW.
The good that was here will be transferred, and that that is destructive, it will be left behind and burned away. As the mountains topple here and the seas dry up, they will become that which you will see on the other side. Literally ON THE OTHER SIDE.
September 3, 2011 – WASHINGTON, DC – Nature is pummeling the United States this year with extremes. Unprecedented triple-digit Fahrenheit (38-plus degree Celsius) heat and devastating drought. Deadly tornadoes leveling towns. Massive rivers overflowing. A billion-dollar blizzard. And now, unusual hurricane-caused flooding in the northeastern state of Vermont. If what’s falling from the sky isn’t enough, the ground shook in places that normally seem stable: Colorado and the entire East Coast. On Friday, a strong quake triggered brief tsunami warnings in Alaska. Arizona and New Mexico have broken records for wildfires. Total weather losses top $35 billion, and that’s not counting Hurricane Irene, according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. There have been more than 700 U.S. disaster and weather deaths, most from the tornado outbreaks this spring. Last year, the world seemed to go wild with natural disasters in the deadliest year in a generation. But 2010 was bad globally, and the United States mostly was spared. This year, while there have been devastating events elsewhere, such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Australia’s flooding and a drought in Africa, it’s is the United States’ turn to get smacked. “I’m hoping for a break. I’m tired of working this hard. This is ridiculous,” said Jeff Masters, a meteorologist who runs Weather Underground, a meteorology service that tracks strange and extreme weather. “I’m not used to seeing all these extremes all at once in one year.” The U.S. has had a record 10 weather catastrophes costing more than a billion dollars: five separate tornado outbreaks, two different major river floods in the Upper Midwest and the Mississippi River, drought in the Southwest and a blizzard that crippled the Midwest and Northeast, and Irene.
The East Coast got a double-whammy in one week with a magnitude 5.8 earthquake followed by a drenching from Irene. If one place felt more besieged than others, it was tiny Mineral, Virginia, the epicenter of the quake, where Louisa County Fire Lt. Floyd Richard stared at the darkening sky before Irene and said, “What did we do to Mother Nature to come through here like this.” There are still four months to go, including September, the busiest month of the hurricane season. The Gulf Coast expected a soaking this weekend from Tropical Storm Lee and forecasters were watching Hurricane Katia slogging west in the Atlantic. The insurance company Munich Re calculated that in the first six months of the year there have been 98 natural disasters in the United States, about double the average of the 1990s. Even before Irene, the Federal Emergency Management Agency was on pace to obliterate the record for declared disasters issued by state, reflecting both the geographic breadth and frequency of America’s problem-plagued year. “If you weren’t in a drought, you were drowning is what it came down to,” Masters said. Add to that, oppressive and unrelenting heat. Tens of thousands of daily weather records have been broken or tied and nearly 1,000 all-time records set, with most of them heat or rain related. “I think this year has really been extraordinary in terms of natural catastrophes,” said Andreas Schrast, head of catastrophic perils for Swiss Re, another big insurer. One of the most noticeable and troubling weather extremes was the record-high nighttime temperatures, said Tom Karl, director of NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center. That shows that the country wasn’t cooling off at all at night, which both the human body and crops need. “These events are abnormal,” Karl said. “But it’s part of an ongoing trend we’ve seen since 1980.” –Taiwan News

Jeremiah 51:25 “Look, I am against you, devastating mountain— [this is] the LORD’s declaration— you devastate the whole earth. I will stretch out My hand against you, roll you down from the cliffs, and turn you into a burned out mountain.”
Tornadoes were reported in New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.
Delaware’s Gov. Jack Markell said he believed a tornado tore through 17 homes near Lewes, Del., and off Rehoboth Beach, the National Weather Service reported a waterspout — essentially, a tornado out at sea. There were no reports of major injuries.
At least five homes in the Sandbridge area of Virginia Beach, Va., sustained major damage from a tornado, said Mary Hancock, a spokeswoman for the city, but the area had already been evacuated and there were no injuries reported. Several other homes in the area were less seriously damaged.
“The category of hurricane doesn’t explain all the risk,” Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate said. “Rainfall and tornadoes are not tied to the category of a storm … some of the most devastating floods have been from tropical storms.”
What do tornadoes have to do with hurricanes? A hurricane is a giant vortex of low presure sending wind and rain whipping around — but also drawing air in from other, dryer areas to fill the vacuum created by the storm. When cooler, dryer air collides with the muggy air of the hurricane, the conditions are ripe for funnel clouds to spin off in almost any direction.
While the tornadoes are much smaller than the hurricane itself, they can be considerably more intense. Their strength — and the amount of damage they can cause — is not related to the strength of the hurricane.
Americans most often hear about tornadoes in the Midwest and South, especially in the spring as cold air from Canada is pushed back by the growing warmth in the Gulf of Mexico. That formula makes for the largest number of tornadoes on earth. But meteorologists say they can happen anywhere on the planet — and in a hurricane, all bets are off. – ABC News
The name Irene is no mere coincidence. It is the operational code name of the LOZ members directing the course of that hurricane. This will be such a crushing for not only the loss of life, but a huge hit to the U.S. economy as no money will be available to rebuild what is about to topple and be brought asunder. Satan has directed nearly all of his demonic forces to scramble and try to force Irene off course. While he does this, watch what the other LOZ operational groups do else where. Satan’s troops cannot be everywhere at once. Another earthquake is in the making, and Satan has pulled his troops out of that battle to halt it. Now he is forced with choosing his battles more wisely. The LOZ are alsi working not only the fault-lines, but also some volcanoes that will set off a chain reaction of devastating events. Soon, the news commentators will questuion as to whether or not this entire planet is breaking apart.
The first half of 2011 saw thousands of lives lost to natural disasters and made it the most expensive on record in terms of property damage.
In January, earthquakes hit Argentina, Chile, Iran, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Tonga. In February, they hit Burma, the Pacific Islands and the big one, in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The quake struck at midday. Buildings were toppled. Scores were buried under rubble and 181 died. Survivors who crawled from collapsed office buildings were stunned.
One woman who appeared dazed, said of her office building, “It just came down. Like, right down.”
The monster earthquake of 2011 in Japan was like something out of a science fiction movie. From 20 miles under the surface of the Pacific, the quake created a wall of water 130 feet high that traveled six miles inland, causing cars and boats to bob like toys.
It was a quake so powerful it moved the island of Honshu eight feet. More than 15,000 people died and nearly 5,000 are still missing.
Then in a terrible twist, after the quake knocked out power at the Fukushima nuclear plant, the tsunami washed out its backup generators, the last line of defense against overheating. It would be the world’s first triple meltdown, spreading radiation over a wide area.
It was the worst disaster to afflict Japan since World War II.
U.S. Tornado Outbreak
The world was still in shock when the southern and eastern United States experienced the worst rash of tornadoes in recorded weather history. The 2011 “Super Outbreak” included four EF-5 tornadoes, and led to almost 350 deaths and more than $6 billion in insured losses.
Then just weeks later on a Sunday afternoon in May, a mile-wide multiple vortex EF-5 tornado plowed through Joplin, Mo., obliterating parts of the city, killing 159 people and causing an estimated $2 billion in insured losses.
The insurance industry was left reeling. Americans were in shock.
Vinson Synan, author of 19 books and the dean emeritus at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., says the unprecedented string of calamities is forcing many Americans to ask, ‘Why?’
“It’s a sobering thing, for even natural man to face up to natural disasters that don’t make any sense at all. And to hit randomly in the world, and may hit you,” Synan said. “And the question, in the back of their minds — ‘What does this mean?’”
“So I think it brings people to question the ultimate end of everything,” he explained.
And unfortunately, the world’s worst disasters could still be ahead, like a category five hurricane making a direct hit on a large American city.
Disaster Scenarios Studied
Experts have studied other disaster scenarios that many Americans do not know about.
For example, geologists have warned that heavy rains on Mount Rainer in Washington State could cause a deadly 40-mile mudslide moving at 60 mph, filled with rocks and trees.
Some fear the collapse of the giant volcanic mountain Cumbre Vieja in the Canary Islands could send an 80-foot high tsunami slamming into the east coast of the United States at 600 mph.
And along the Mississippi, a catastrophic quake at the giant new Madrid fault would cause utter devastation to America’s heartland, changing the course of the mighty Mississippi, and causing the ground to roll like the ocean, as it did in 1811 and 1812.
Many Americans might think they live in one of the safest periods in world history. But do they? Why have so many natural disasters struck the planet this year, and what does it mean?
“It brings people to question the ultimate end of everything. Even the natural man who doesn’t even know God, is saying ‘Something bad is happening,’ ‘It’s getting worse and worse,’” Synan told CBN News.
“What are the ultimate reasons for this? What’s the ultimate answer from God or from somewhere?,’” he asked. – CBN
It is Father as Nature’s SOURCE of destruction. Father is angry and His holy angels are pouring out the bowls of wrath on an evil world of people. Keep count of how many more are perishing by Father’s hand, and those dying from Satan’s hand in causing violence throughout this planet, just as he did before the global flood.
Matthew 24:3-8 “Signs of the End of the Age”
“While He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached Him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of birth pains.”
Mother Nature had no intentions of giving the U.S. a break after a spring of dangerous weather conditions, and Monday took a turn for the unusual: A storm that prompted a tornado watch across Nebraska and Kansas also left 2-4 inches of snow in the Rocky Mountains.
On the last day of spring, a winter storm advisory was posted Monday in the mountains of Colorado for areas above 10,000 feet until 6 p.m. local time, and at least three tornadoes were reported in Kansas, according to the National Weather Service.
Officials said four people were injured, none seriously, when a twister destroyed three homes in Norton County, Kan. The storms knocked over freight train cars and halted play at the College World Series in Nebraska.
Fires and floods
Meanwhile, firefighters gained ground against wildfires in the Southwest. Much lighter winds Monday allowed aircraft to again attack several fires in Arizona and New Mexico. Air crews had been grounded for most of Sunday. Firefighting efforts have been dogged for days by hot, windy weather.
Authorities in southern Arizona went through neighborhoods Monday to tally the damage from a wildfire that was pushed by fierce winds into a heavily populated area.
Officials said the fire came off a mountain Sunday afternoon into the outskirts of Sierra Vista and forced about 3,000 residents of 1,700 homes to flee. The evacuations brought the total number to about 10,000 people from 4,300 homes forced out by the Monument fire.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Monday she was sending 90 National Guardsmen to areas threatened by the Monument fire.
Meanwhile, the massive Wallow fire that has been burning in eastern Arizona for three weeks kept about 200 residents of Luna, N.M., under an evacuation order for a third day.
One town burned by the Wallow fire in Arizona reopened Monday. Residents of the picturesque resort town of Greer were being issued passes to return home.
In southeast Nebraska, the bloated Missouri River rose to within 18 inches of forcing the shutdown of a nuclear power plant, stopped and ebbed slightly Monday, after several levees in northern Missouri failed to hold back the surging waterway.
The river has to hit 902 feet above sea level at Brownville before officials will shut down the Cooper Nuclear Plant, which sits at 903 feet, Nebraska Public Power District spokesman Mark Becker said.
Flooding is a concern all along the river because of the massive amount of water that the Army Corps of Engineers has released from six dams. Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri are downstream of the dams.
Wild world weather, too
Chinese officials said Monday that more rains are predicted for parts of the country in the next several days after flooding killed dozens and forced thousands to flee their homes.
The downpours brought floods to central regions. But they also helped end the worst drought in decades.
The floods killed 175 people and left at least 86 missing.
On Monday night, Tropical Storm Beatriz reached hurricane strength and began pounding Mexico’s Pacific coast. Authorities closed the popular tourist ports of Acapulco and Manzanillo ahead of the hurricane’s arrival.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Beatriz had sustained winds of about 75 m.p.h. and was expected to brush over Mexico’s coast before heading back out to sea.
Daniel 2:21 He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.
In the winter, there was the record snowfall across the Northeast. Record rainfall and floods in Ohio Valley followed in April and May. The Southwest has been plagued by drought for months, while tornadoes have devastated the Midwest and South. Record heat is scorching most of the country this week — just days after snow fell in Hawaii. Meteorologists predict a harrowing hurricane season.
Is some underlying climactic condition driving these extreme weather events? There are two potential candidates: The first is La Niña, trade winds that blow through every five years, cooling the water of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and shifting the jet stream northwest. The second is global warming, the average worldwide temperature increase of 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit over the past century that has resulted from the dramatic rise of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
La Niña and global warming are both partly responsible for some of the episodes of wild weather, experts say. However, natural atmospheric variability has also come into play this year; to some extent, the pile-on of wild weather is random chance.
The “experts” fail to see a third possibility – that being Yahweh’s wrath that brings the calamities via wild weather and natural disasters upon the nations.
The land of Israel is Her reality we exist within. And to the nations of 2011:
Jeremiah 28:16 “Therefore, this is what the LORD says: ‘I am about to send you off the face of the earth. You will die this year because you have spoken rebellion against the LORD. ‘ ”
Unless you are raptured away from the earth, you would share in being swept away, just like Lot was warned when he was ushered away to safety by the holy angels whom took him by the hand and led him and his family away from the coming Wrath. Lot’s wife perished, because she was not obedient to Yahweh’s command.
Genesis 19:15 “At the crack of dawn the angels urged Lot on: “Get up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city.”
If it seems like this year’s tornado season has been unusually severe, that’s because it has. The Weather Channel and weather.com’s Tornado Expert Dr. Greg Forbes says the 2011 tornado numbers are a mind-boggling 106% above average. And the year is not over yet.
“It took until December in 2010 to have as many tornadoes as we’ve already had this year,” says Dr. Forbes.
Needless to say, by virtue of an inconceivable April, we’re on a record pace.”
While we’ve had tornadoes in every month this year, the extreme tornado outbreaks began in April and continued through May. Dr. Forbes keeps a meticulous list of every tornado report throughout the year. He’s crunched the numbers to compare 2011 to every other year in the past decade.
2011 Tornado Statistics
Forbes Count 10-Yr Average Departure from Average
Jan 16 22 -32% Actual
Feb 61 32 +91% Actual
Mar 75 83 -10% Actual
Apr (573 confirmed) 762 163 +367% (Forbes estimate)
May 332 298 +11% (Forbes estimate)
June (through 2nd) 13 16 -19% (Forbes estimate)
2011 (to date) 1262 614 +106% (Forbes estimate)
Powerful thunderstorms will target part of Tornado Alley into Thursday, but the most and the worst of the storms will tend to ride north and west of areas hit the hardest by tornadoes a couple of weeks ago.
Areas from Texas to Illinois and southern Wisconsin will be the primary focus of the storms with this severe weather outbreak that will include large hail, damaging straight-line wind gusts and a couple of handfuls of tornadoes.
The air battle in the physical realm is coming soon. The United States will lead the joint effort against the LOZ. Satan has advised the USA to fire negative energy laser beams into all new tornadoes and even the threatening clouds that spawn them when the opportunity avails itself.
The U.S. will be testing Satan’s advise on tornado-control with military planes that are already equipped with long range laser weapons. The tornado’s ferocity is heightened by the LOZ members that add the extra power and size coupled with its natural spinning motion, and also alter its direction of movement across a given target area. In reality, the LOZ are the true target and not merely the tornadoes. Kill the added power source and you lessen the damage that would otherwise be catastrophic over that of a nature driven whirlwind.
#1 – Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis – At first it seemed like a fluke; but now it’s a pattern. The weather is becoming increasingly extreme. Over 120 tornadoes recently struck the U.S. Midwest. Texas is on fire and suffering through an extreme drought. And where there aren’t fires and droughts, there are floods. This is only the beginning… watch for more freak weather over the next 18 months.
#2 – The silence of the bees – Colony Collapse Disorder continues to accelerate across North America. We already know it’s being caused in part by chemical pesticides (and possibly worsened by GMOs), but the chemical industry is engaged in a full-on cover-up to deny this truth while the pollinators of our world suffer a devastating population collapse. (http://www.naturalnews.com/028218_p…)
#3 – The failure of nuclear science – The Fukushima catastrophe proves one thing: Scientists are dangerously arrogant in their planning of large-scale projects, and they fail to account for the awesome power of Mother Nature. Nuclear science promised us clean, green energy — but now it has delivered a silent, invisible poison that’s infecting our planet.
#4 – The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks – In an age of such rampant deceit, there is no room for the truth. So those who tell the truth (Wikileaks) are viciously pursued as if they were criminals.
#5 – The rise of the medical police state – The armed SWAT raids on Maryanne Godboldo in Detroit are only the beginning (http://www.naturalnews.com/032091_M…). The truth is that the medical system uses guns to force its vaccines and chemotherapy onto children and teens across America. The medical system has become so utterly useless, corrupt and dangerous that it must actually invoke guns in peoples’ faces just to “convince” people to take its medicine. This is a gunpoint-enforced medical monopoly that exists as a threat to our health and our freedoms.
#6 – The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures – Notice the spike in food prices? That’s just the beginning: Food prices will continue to skyrocket in the years ahead due to extreme weather, the loss of pollinators and the global contamination of crops by GMOs. Real food is becoming increasingly scarce in our world. You might want to think about starting a home garden…
#7 – The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies – The radioactive fallout from Fukushima isn’t the only way in which energy companies are destroying our world: Don’t forget about the Deepwater Horizon and the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico — a spill that isn’t over, by the way. They’re still spraying Corexit in the Gulf one year later!
#8 – The continued GMO contamination of our planet – This may be the worst chapter in the coming collapse: The widespread genetic pollution of our planet through GMOs. This is a crime against nature and against humanity. It is a “gene spill” that may never be contained as it spreads its deadly DNA across the world’s food crops, leading to crop failures and starvation (http://www.naturalnews.com/032167_g…). The use of GMOs is the closest thing to “Satanic” that you’ll find in modern agriculture. The agenda behind this is pure evil.
#9 – The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food (raw milk) – When you can’t even sell honest farm food to your neighbors without being targeted and arrested by the cops, something is terribly wrong with the world. But this is happening today, all across America. Now the feds are even targeting the Amish! (http://www.naturalnews.com/029322_r…)
#10 – The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply – In a failed economic system approaching collapse, the moronic leaders can only think of “solutions” that actually accelerate their own downfall. The runaway counterfeiting of money by the Federal Reserve (with its “quantitative easing” and other counterfeit methods) is a classic sign that the end of our current system is fast approaching. The economic insanities are obvious to anyone who can still do math.
#11 – The plummeting intelligence of the masses – One of the most disturbing signs that we’re already in the collapse is the great dumbing-down of the masses. The drooling, CNN-watching television zombies who dominate our landscape offer absolutely nothing of value to the world. They are the “mindless consumers” who get vaccinated, watch television and eat processed, pasteurized junk food. They’re on psychiatric meds and believe everything the government tells them. Most of these people, of course, won’t make it through the collapse.
#12 – The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news – Much of the mainstream news is now utterly and completely fabricated these days: The reporting on Obama’s long-form birth certificate; the news about the war in Libya; the coverage of the economy and the U.S. debt… it’s all so utterly false and unbelievable that an intelligent person watching the news can’t help but explode with laughter. It is a sign of this collapse that the information sources relied upon by the masses are unable to report the truth anymore and must resort to weaving politically expedient fictions on everything from health care and medicine to the fate of the U.S. dollar itself.
#13 – The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world – Beyond the GMO contamination and the radiation contamination of our world, we are also experiencing the mass pharmaceutical contamination of our planet. It’s not just the pharma factories that dump their products into the rivers (http://www.naturalnews.com/025415_w…); it’s also the fact that well over half the population is now taking drugs almost daily, and those drugs pass right through their bodies and end up in the water supply where they contaminate the fish (http://www.naturalnews.com/025933.html). Even beyond that, the drugs end up in the human sewage sludge that’s packaged and sold as “organic soil!” (http://www.naturalnews.com/029504_o…)
#14 – The radioactive contamination of the global food supply – Here’s one that’s really insidious: The global food supply is now contaminated with the radioactive fallout from Fukushima. We’re told the levels are “low,” but we’re not told the truth of how radioactive cesium isotopes persist in the food supply for centuries. How is the human race going to survive its exposure to CT scans, radioactive food, chest X-rays, TSA body scanners and even the secret DHS mobile X-ray vans that can penetrate your body with X-rays as you’re walking into a football stadium? The total radiation burden on the human race is now reaching a point of mass infertility. That may be the whole idea, actually.
It’s accelerating, too
Were the tragic deaths in Alabama linked to climate change? CoyoteBlog makes a pretty convincing case that no, they aren’t–and that in fact, tornadoes, which are caused by masses of cold air running into warm air, are probably among the last things we’d expect to increase as the globe warms.
By the way, note the 2nd to last bar, which I believe it the 2008 bar (this chart is really hard to read, but it is the only way I have found the data from the NOAA). In spring of 2008, the media went nuts with a spring spate of tornadoes, saying that the apocalypse was here and this was the ultimate proof of global warming. In particular, ABC ran a story about how the frequency was twice the previous year. Beyond the insanity of drawing long term trends in a noisy system from 2 data points, notice that the previous year was virtually the lowest number in half a century, and despite being twice as high, 2008 turned out to be an average to lower-than-average tornado year. This is what the media does with the climate issue, and why you can trust almost none of it.
Joel 2:7 “They attack as warriors [attack]; they scale walls as men of war [do]. Each goes on his own path, and they do not change their course.”
And so Yahweh also does what just before the kings are removed? “He changes the times and seasons;” Do you have warm weather in winter and cold weather in summer? Tornadoes out of season? Soon, time itself will become distorted.
