Sam F. in Camden wants to know, "Why does Tornado Alley get more tornadoes than New York State?" it's all about location, location, location, as I explain in this video. It helps to remind ourselves what conditions create tornadoes, and then compare and contrast how Tornado Alley has these conditions far more often than does NYS. Also, it is a two part question, and so relatedly, how does the Storm Prediction Center (which is in Norman, OK), know where severe weather may be on a given day? Enjoy :)
