On the 4th of July, Americans like to celebrate the things that make the United States unique, and a lot of those things have to do with our geography. That remarkable geography is also responsible for some pretty unique weather, and unfortunately for the millions of people living in the Midwest, that weather includes tornadoes. In this episode of SciShow, Hank explains why scientists think the U.S. is prone to so many tornadoes.

Informative post and video indeed!

Well, I did know what Tornadoes were, but the reason why America gets so many of them wasn’t something I knew about, which this video so well explained. I guess it does have a lot to do with the moisture and other things as mentioned here.

I guess that’s another reason for the recent floods in Toronto yesterday – I hope people stay safe there. Need to visit SciShow and the links you mentioned here.

Thanks for sharing :)
