Our Plan

To find our conclusion we are going to research and find which region has the most F4 tornadoes occur with in the past fifty- six years. Then we are going to compare the data using the graphs we made

The graphs make it easier for us to read and it keeps all the data sorted depending on County and tornado intensity. The graphs also show us the amount of tornadoes the have occurred in each county over the past fifty years.
We got the data from the http://www4.ncdc.noaa.gov/cgi-win/wwcgi.dll?wwEvent~Storms and from http://nc-climate.ncsu.edu/climate/tornadoes.html

 

 

 

 This graph shows all the tornadoes that happened in each County in the Mountain Region.
