This page documents notable tornadoes and tornado outbreaks worldwide in 2022. Strong and destructive tornadoes form most frequently in the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Bangladesh, and Eastern India, but can occur almost anywhere under the right conditions. Tornadoes also develop occasionally in southern Canada during the Northern Hemisphere's summer and somewhat regularly at other times of the year across Europe, Asia, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand. Tornadic events are often accompanied by other forms of severe weather, including strong thunderstorms, strong winds, and hail.

There have been 1,229 preliminary filtered reported tornadoes in the United States in 2022,[3] of which 1,033 have been confirmed. Worldwide, 30 tornado-related deaths have been confirmed: 21 in the United States, three in China, two each in Poland and Russia, and one each in the Netherlands and Ukraine.

Despite an extremely active beginning to the season, which included the most active March ever recorded,[4] tornado activity slowed significantly in the later part of spring and into the summer, bringing the season's total below average.[5]

Europe

Europe

Europe is a large peninsula conventionally considered a continent in its own right because of its great physical size and the weight of its history and traditions. Europe is also considered a subcontinent of Eurasia and it is located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere. Comprising the westernmost peninsulas of Eurasia, it shares the continental landmass of Afro-Eurasia with both Africa and Asia.

European windstorm

European windstorm

European windstorms are powerful extratropical cyclones which form as cyclonic windstorms associated with areas of low atmospheric pressure. They can occur throughout the year, but are most frequent between October and March, with peak intensity in the winter months. Deep areas of low pressure are common over the North Atlantic, and occasionally start as nor'easters off the New England coast. They frequently track across the North Atlantic Ocean towards the north of Scotland and into the Norwegian Sea, which generally minimizes the impact to inland areas; however, if the track is further south, it may cause adverse weather conditions across Central Europe, Northern Europe and especially Western Europe. The countries most commonly affected include the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, the Faroe Islands and Iceland.

On May 12, the SPC issued a moderate risk for the Upper Midwest, from western Minnesota and southeastern North Dakota to northeastern Nebraska and extreme northwestern Iowa, including eastern South Dakota. Conditions were favorable for a significant straight-line wind event, though a secondary threat of strong tornadoes was also present, and a 10% hatched tornado risk area was outlined as well. Two tornado watches were issued later that day, but the main watch was a PDS severe thunderstorm watch that was issued across the area as well, indicating the possibility of tornadoes and severe wind gusts to 105 miles per hour (169 km/h). A strong derecho developed over Nebraska and moved northeast, affecting parts of Iowa, Minnesota, and the Dakotas with destructive straight-line winds that exceeded 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) in some areas, causing widespread damage to trees, power lines, buildings, and agriculture. Circulations embedded within and along the leading edge of the derecho produced numerous tornadoes, a few of which were strong.[73][74][75] A high-end EF2 tornado caused major damage to a farm south of Gary, South Dakota, ripping the roof and exterior walls off a house and injuring one person. A strong EF2 rope tornado hit Castlewood, where homes sustained severe damage, a school building had much of its roof torn off, sheds and garages were destroyed, many trees and power poles were snapped, and one person was injured.

On May 19, a long-tracked EF2 tornado touched down near Keensburg, Illinois before moving across the southeast side of Mount Carmel, then crossing into Indiana and striking Decker. Countless large trees were snapped or uprooted along the path, many or which landed on structures, and power poles were also snapped. Barns were destroyed and pivot irrigation sprinklers were flipped in rural areas, and the tornado ended up crossing the White River seven times before dissipating. An EF1 tornado downed trees in and around Greenville, Illinois, destroying barns and damaging a few homes in areas outside of town as well. A few weak EF0 tornadoes also touched down in parts of the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area, causing minor tree damage.[80][31] On May 20, a destructive EF3 tornado swept through the city of Gaylord, Michigan, killing two people and injuring 44 others. Many homes and businesses in Gaylord were severely damaged or destroyed, cars were tossed in parking lots, and RVs were thrown and demolished at a dealership. The two fatalities occurred at a mobile home park in town, where multiple mobile homes were completely destroyed.[81][82][83] This tornado was the first to be rated EF3 in Michigan since 2012, and caused over 6,000 people to lose power.[84] Farther east, an EF0 tornado briefly touched down in Aberdeen, New Jersey, downing trees and causing minor damage to some homes.[85] The Gaylord tornado caused $50 million in damage.[86] On May 21, isolated weak tornadoes occurred across parts of Indiana and Arkansas, resulting in marginal damage.[31] Severe weather at Wrigley Field postponed a game between the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks.[87]

However, a more significant severe weather event unfolded on May 21 farther north in Canada, as a powerful and deadly derecho with wind gusts of up to 118 mph (190 km/h; 52.8 m/s) caused extensive damage across large areas of Ontario and Quebec, resulting in 11 fatalities from straight-line winds. The London, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec City metro areas all sustained significant impacts from the derecho, along with many other smaller cities and towns. The intense winds toppled many trees and power lines, damaged buildings, shattered windows, and caused massive power outages.[88] The derecho produced four embedded QLCS tornadoes, including two EF1 tornadoes that moved through parts of London, Ontario, one of which touched down in the Huron Heights section of the city, snapping and uprooting trees, damaging the roof of an apartment building, and damaging hangars and small planes at an airport. The other EF1 tornado struck the Wilton Grove neighborhood, badly damaging a warehouse, bending a power pole, and downing trees.[89] The third tornado spawned by the derecho was strong, producing EF2 damage in Uxbridge, Ontario, where a brewery and a three-story apartment building were unroofed, cars were flipped, and many large trees were snapped or uprooted, some of which landed on structures and vehicles. Other apartment buildings, homes, and a church in town had large portions of their roofs ripped off, a train station was damaged, and many power lines were also downed.[90] Another embedded EF2 tornado touched down east of Lake Scugog and passed near the rural communities of Janetville and Yelverton, damaging or destroying multiple outbuildings, barns, and machine sheds. Numerous trees were snapped as the tornado impacted wooded areas.[91] About 950,000 people in Canada lost power due to the derecho. The cold air behind the system also brought a 50 °F (28 °C) temperature plunge to Denver, Colorado, as well as accumulating snow. Overall, a total of 25 tornadoes occurred. The severe weather resulted in two tornado-related fatalities, and an 11 additional fatalities from the derecho. Numerous injuries also occurred.[92]

In Russia, a brief F0 tornado caused minor roof damage in Ilovlya.[93] In the Netherlands, an F1 tornado struck Beek, where homes sustained severe roof damage and garden sheds were destroyed. In Germany, one long-tracked supercell produced at least four tornadoes. The first was a strong F2 wedge tornado which touched down to the west of Lippstadt in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, first causing damage in the villages of Eickelborn and Benninghausen, where two medical clinic buildings were partially unroofed, a supermarket sustained roof damage, and trees were downed. Continuing to the east, the tornado reached peak intensity as it moved through a rural area, where a brick farm home had much of its roofing removed, and a large and well-built brick farm building was partially destroyed. A smaller outbuilding was completely destroyed, many large trees were snapped and uprooted, and a large masonry-construction church had its steeple torn off in this area as well. Continuing directly into Lippstadt, the tornado weakened, but caused roof damage to many homes, businesses, and a school, and downed numerous trees in the city before dissipating. Some large trees landed on vehicles and buildings, causing considerable damage. The Lippstadt tornado had a path length of 13.4 kilometers (8.3 mi), and did not result in any serious injuries.[94] The second F2 tornado caused major damage as it tore directly through Paderborn. Homes, churches, schools, businesses, and apartment buildings in the city sustained partial to total roof loss, including an apartment building that was unroofed and sustained partial failure of its top-floor exterior walls. An office building, a large furniture store, and a used car business were significantly damaged and had their roofs ripped off, and warehouses were also heavily damaged. Metal light poles were bent to the ground, while cars, trucks, and vehicle trailers were tossed and severely damaged, and other vehicles were damaged by flying debris. Numerous large trees were snapped or uprooted in Paderborn, and streets were left strewn with debris. The Paderborn tornado injured 43 people along its 21.5 kilometer (13.4 mi)-long path, including 13 serious injuries.[95]

The third tornado from the supercell, rated high-end F1, struck the towns of Ovenhausen and Lütmarsen, damaging dozens of trees and roofs along its 8.0 kilometer (5.0 mi)-long path, and injuring two people. Many homes sustained heavy roof damage, a soccer field was damaged, and a large industrial building had its roof blown off. Trees were snapped, and outbuildings were damaged or destroyed in rural areas as well.[96] A fourth and final tornado produced by the supercell, which was rated F2, touched down in a densely-forested area near Merxhausen, flattening large swaths of trees, with every tree in the direct path being snapped or uprooted in the most severely affected areas. The strong tornado then struck Merxhausen, where a large house and a masonry building had their roof structures completely destroyed, and a small summer home was also destroyed. Multiple other homes and buildings in town suffered major roof damage, including a few that had significant portions of their roofs torn off. The Merxhausen tornado remained on the ground for 11.2 kilometers (7.0 mi) and reached a peak width of up to 750 meters (820 yd), resulting in one injury.[97] A brief low-end F1 tornado also hit a suburban area in southwestern Herford, causing roof and tree damage along its 0.65 kilomter (0.4 mi) long path.[98] An F1 tornado downed numerous trees in wooded areas near Abtsgmünd, and another rain-wrapped F1 tornado downed additional trees and caused slight roof damage in Hillscheid.

Tornado family

A tornado family is a series of tornadoes spawned by the same supercell thunderstorm. These families form a line of successive or parallel tornado paths and can cover a short span or a vast distance. Tornado families are sometimes mistaken as a single continuous tornado, especially prior to the 1970s. Sometimes the tornado tracks can overlap and expert analysis is necessary to determine whether or not damage was created by a family or a single tornado. In some cases, such as the Hesston-Goessel, Kansas tornadoes of March 1990, different tornadoes of a tornado family merge, making discerning whether an event was continuous or not more difficult.

As severe thunderstorms and supercells spawned by Storm Beatrice moved across Northern France and Southern England, at least eight tornadoes were produced, a few of which were strong and caused major damage.[188] Two tornadoes struck Hampshire in England, including one in New Milton that damaged roofs, and one in Colden Common that came close to the Marwell Zoo, downing trees and signs in the zoo's car park, and destroying some outbuildings.[189] Six tornadoes touched down in France, including an F2 tornado that struck Beuzeville, where severe damage to homes occurred and semi-trucks were thrown into a pile. Another F2 tornado impacted Songeons, damaging industrial buildings, tearing roofing from homes and businesses, and destroying large outbuilding structures. The most significant event of the outbreak was a very long-tracked EF3/F3/T6 tornado, which became the longest-tracked tornado in the history of France, remaining on the ground for 206 km (128 mi). The tornado caused severe damage in multiple towns, with the most intense damage occurring in Bihucourt, where well-built brick homes and other buildings sustained total loss of their roofs and exterior walls, cars were tossed, and debris was scattered throughout the community. The tornado eventually crossed into Belgium, causing tree and roof damage in a few villages before dissipating. F1 tornadoes also caused considerable damage in the towns of Ferrières-en-Bray, Gaudechart, and Beaudéduit.[190]

On November 4, an outbreak of strong to violent tornadoes took place in Northeast Texas, southwestern Arkansas, southeastern Oklahoma, and northwestern Louisiana, with multiple large and destructive tornadoes being confirmed. The outbreak was spawned by a potent upper-level trough, which interacted with a highly unstable and moist environment in place across the ArkLaTex region. The Storm Prediction Center forecasted an environment that would be favorable for long-lived supercells and tornadoes, with the potential for strong tornadoes noted. That afternoon, a moderate risk was issued for the threat area, including 15% hatched risk area for tornadoes.

During the late afternoon and evening hours, multiple tornadic supercells formed in East Texas before they moved northeast into Oklahoma and Arkansas, producing multiple long-tracked significant tornadoes. The first tornado of day the produced EF1 damage to mobile homes, houses, and trees in and around Calera, Oklahoma. Near the town of Powderly, Texas, a nearly mile-wide EF4 wedge tornado leveled and swept homes from their foundations as it moved through the rural community of Caviness, injuring one person and destroying some additional homes in Midcity. A narrow but strong EF2 tornado caused significant damage to a couple of homes near Sulphur Springs and was documented by numerous storm chasers. A rain-wrapped EF2 tornado also struck Athens, where houses and a large metal warehouse structure were damaged, while another EF2 destroyed a chicken house and a mobile home near Pickens, Oklahoma, resulting in a fatality and an injury. A violent and long-tracked EF4 tornado debarked trees, tossed cars, and destroyed houses near Clarksville, Texas, including one that was swept clean from its foundation. The tornado crossed into Oklahoma and impacted the town of Idabel, where many homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed, and several people were injured. An EF3 tornado near Cason, Texas killed one person, injured eight others, completely destroyed multiple homes and mobile homes, knocked over metal truss transmission towers, and caused major tree damage. Another large EF3 tornado severely damaged or destroyed a number of homes, businesses, and outbuildings as it passed near the towns of Simms and New Boston. An EF2 tornado heavily damaged homes in and around Hughes Springs, where a fire station was also damaged, and numerous large trees were snapped or uprooted in and around town. In Arkansas, a mobile home, a free-standing tower, and some outbuildings were destroyed by an EF2 tornado near Center Point, while another brief EF2 destroyed a barn and downed many trees in the Kirby area. EF1 tornadoes also caused moderate damage in the towns of Mansfield and Green Forest. Later that night, a brief but strong EF2 tornado touched down near Sardis, tearing roofs off of a few homes and causing significant tree damage. On November 5, the storm system produced numerous reports of damaging straight-line winds in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, and an EF0 tornado caused minor damage to trees, power lines, and a barn near Big Rock. A third non-tornadic fatality occurred in Stilwell, Oklahoma from drowning. This marked the first time since the 1997 Central Texas tornado outbreak that more than one violent tornado (EF4-EF5) occurred in Texas on the same day. They were also the second and third F4/EF4 tornadoes in the month of November on record for the state. Two fatalities and a total of 31 tornadoes were confirmed as a result of this outbreak.[193]

A fire station in town was also damaged, a trampoline was thrown, and trees were downed as well.[194] Later that day at around 13:45 UTC, a supercell thunderstorm produced an unusually strong tornado for November in northern Saarland in Germany. It remained on the ground for at least 10.9 kilometres (6.8 mi) and crossed the Autobahn 1 shortly after it touched down. The tornado first hit the village of Dirmingen, where trees and power poles were snapped, and damage patterns indicated a multiple-vortex structure. The most significant damage occurred in the neighboring town of Urexweiler, where at least 25 houses sustained damage, and a few had large sections of roofing torn off. Trees were downed, metal power pylons were damaged, vehicles were damaged by flying debris, and carports were destroyed in town. Streets in Urexweiler were left littered with broken roof tiles, and severe tree damage occurred in forested areas outside of town, where numerous large trees were snapped. Both Thomas Sävert, a German meteorologist and tornado expert, as well as the European Severe Storms Laboratory (ESSL), rated the tornado an F2, with the ESSL also assigning it a T4 rating. No known injuries occurred as a result of the tornadoes.[195][196]

An small outbreak of tornadoes, some of which were strong to intense, took place in the Dixie Alley region, with tornadoes being confirmed in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. The Storm Prediction Center forecasted an environment that would be favorable for long-tracked supercells and tornadoes, with the potential for long-tracked EF3+ tornadoes noted. A day before the event, a moderate risk was issued for the threat area for a 15 percent hatched risk area for tornadoes. A day later, the moderate risk was extended to include north-western Alabama, northeast Louisiana, southeast Arkansas, and most of Mississippi. The first intense tornado of the day, an EF3, injured one person near Clarks, Louisiana, along with debarking trees and deeply scouring the ground. Another strong tornado struck the community of Woodlawn, Mississippi, earning a high-end EF2 rating. A tornado near Stringer damaged a well-built brick home. The second intense tornado of the outbreak touched down near State Line producing weak tree damage. It crossed into Alabama, hitting the community of Fruitdale and damaging Fruitdale High School. It then impacted the community of Tibbie, where low-end EF3 tree damage was observed. Soon after, another EF2 tornado touched down just north of Montgomery, Alabama, hitting the community of Flatwood and Willow Springs. Two people were killed when an uprooted tree fell on a mobile home. Numerous other weak tornadoes touched down across Mississippi and Alabama, earning EF0 or EF1 ratings.[31]
