Updated tornado trends

I took NOAA’s data and made a bar chart. The first bar is an average number of tornadoes for the last ten years. Compare that graph to this year’s number. Wow.

The intervening bars are the three previous year tornado count.

Yikes.

I did this because unlike the previous two NOAA graphs of tornado trends, NOAA has diluted the graphical presentation by muddying it with additional and extraneous data. I took the actual data and presented the information more cleanly so the truth of the situation is more visible.
