Which Country Has The Highest Rate Of Tornadoes Per Area?

India
The Netherlands
Bangledesh
The United States

Answer: The Netherlands

When it comes to sheer number of tornados, there isn’t a country on Earth that can hold a candle to the United States–there’s reason Dorothy remarked “Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas any more.” because she, like significant chunks of the U.S. midwest, had been swept away by a powerful tornado.

What’s interesting, however, is that despite having the largest total number of tornados (and some of the most intense on the planet), the United States doesn’t have the highest number of tornadoes per land area. While tornadoes in the U.S. are largely a midwest phenomenom (and rarely occur West of the Rocky Mountains), The Netherlands has tornadoes across almost its entire geographic region.

Mile for mile, your chances of getting caught up in a tornado are radically higher in The Netherlands than in the U.S. Fortunately for locales and anyone visiting them, Dutch tornadoes tend to be significantly smaller and less destructive than the massive twisters that snake their way across the American Great Plains.
