From data I'm looking at, it appears Texas is #1 in Tornadoes. Averaging to 146.7 per year. Kansas comes next at 92.4 and Oklahoma is third with 65.4.

Texas "Cheats" because of its absurd size. I couldn't find an actual source but according to wiki Oklahoma has had the most F/EF 5 Tornado then any other state.

Technically, if you include EF 0s and 1s, Florida has the largest number of tornados per sq. mi. Who'd've thunk that weather that makes hurricanes can also make tornadoes?

*sigh* I think I'm going to need to go to Broward to deal with my admission. For some reason the stuff I provided them is invalid and then proceeded to tell me to send through things that was what I sent that they marked invalid. I also mentioned being married removes the need to be in the country for 12 months and yet the person on the end of the line kept refusing to acknowledge that and kept bringing up getting an employment letter despite the fact I told her I am not employed.

Well a tornado is kind of like a mini cycone IMO.

But I was doing total number of, not per sq. mile, which I feel is a better indicator. I assume if waterspouts (proper tornadic water spouts*, where the tornado just was over water and never hit land)were included in the tornado count Florida would win flat out.

Actually, I checked that same article, and it says Oklahoma wins on strong tornadoes per unit area, and EF 0 tornadoes aren't waterspouts. Tornadoes are defined by their potential damage-causing capability, not their point of origin, so EF 0 tornadoes are really really weak. It's just that an absolute crapton happen to spawn right over the middle of Florida.

Oh, Sony Vegas. Taking 50 minutes to render 30 minutes of video. If you weren't bought in a bundle of other crap for about 20 bucks, I wouldn't use you. Then again, I don't think there's anything that'll take the garbage file sizes that I'm using HAHA!

Tornadoes are defined by their potential damage-causing capability, not their point of origin, so EF 0 tornadoes are really really weak. It's just that an absolute crapton happen to spawn right over the middle of Florida.

1) The EF Scale is not on "potential damage-causing" its actual damage causing, if it was potential El Reno 2013 would have been an EF-5 as a DOW unit capture wind speeds that were in excess of 295 mph, but the damage created was only equal to an EF3. There was a shit storm over this in the weather community because before El Reno the EF scale was touted as a more empirical scale that took wind speed in to account and the types of trees and buildings in that area. Before it a tornado took out a town it would have been rated F5 due to complete destruction, even if the town was a shanty town of poorly constructed buildings, where the same tornado may have been an EF3 in a town that was mostly concrete buildings. But then with El Reno you had a ground level radar unit measuring ground speeds of a tornado, one that would empirically be rated EF5 due to its wind speeds (note the research group that did this often is contracted by the NWS), and the NWS going "naaahhh lets use less empirical damage"

2) Water spouts (of tornadic origin) are not classified as tornadoes if they do not hit land (I disagree with this, but that is how it is). Waterspouts can be created by different things which is why I included the qualifier "Tornadic origin". As soon as a Tornado hits water it is a waterspout too.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterspout#tornadic

2.5) Non-Tornadic water spouts also tend to at most reach EF0 in terms of strength, again why I used the "tornadic origin" thing.

I don't think they were on any drugs in the 80's. Rather, they were still recovering from all of the drug use in the 70's. :^)

Actually, the 80s were just the 60s but with harder drugs. (70s was mostly pot, 60s was psychotics, and 80s were:
