Extreme Weather Facts and Trivia | Nature and Weather (According to Study.com)



There isn’t a day that goes by where weather doesn’t somehow make the news… especially extreme weather.

It makes sense – lightning storms are always so… striking.

But how much do you know about severe weather? Let’s take your trivia skills for a spin…

(LEARN MORE on Study.com:

Question #1: Each year there are about 100,000 thunderstorms in the U.S. Which state averages the most thunderstorm watches?

A: Alabama
B: Florida
C: Washington

The answer is A, Alabama… Roll tide! Or is it, roll clouds? So much for southern hospitality…

Onto question #2: Tornadoes are fascinating, but also extremely dangerous. How many occur in the United States each year?

A: 100
B: 500
C: 1,000

It’s C, 1,000, and this makes the U.S. the most common place for tornadoes in the world. “Tornado Alley” is a region in the midwest where they most frequently occur.

Finally, question #3: About how many tropical storms and hurricanes in the U.S. are given official names each year?

A: 5
B: 10
C: 50

Believe it or not, it’s B, 10. If this seems low, it’s because you remember some of them so vividly. Katrina, Maria, and Sandy are recent storms so devastating that their names have been retired.
