Vital Date in Indiana Climate Historical past; How calm was this storm season?


31 years ago today, a swarm of tornadoes (37) emerged from the sky and marked the BIGGEST tornado outbreak on record. Eight people were killed, six in Pike County alone.

It was a VERY calm storm season in central Indiana and throughout the of Indiana. Central Indiana escaped the MAI without a tornado warning – not until May 4th in 20 years. The last tornado warning was issued over 7 months ago at the end of October!

Still here in the high season and certainly a long way to go. MAY is followed by JUNE as the most active tornado time of the year nationally and in Indiana. At this point in time nothing has changed – there are no major storms threatening at least next week.
