Many are saying the weather is going crazy and Earth will be history in 12 years. But lets look at past records.


The worst tornado in US history was on March 18, 1925.

That day, a huge outbreak of tornadoes marched across a swath of the Midwest and Southeast. The largest of them all—the deadliest tornado in United States history—laid waste to parts of Missouri, Illinois and Indiana. Now known as the Tri-State Tornado, it turned March 18 into a day of gruesome destruction.

Modern meteorologists believe wind speeds topped 300 miles per hour in some locations. At one point, observers in Missouri calculated that it was a full mile wide.
