Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Are there tornados in Israel?

Asked by W.D., USA Feb. 9, 2006.

According to Weather Glossary tornados "can occur anywhere in the world given the right conditions, but are most frequent in the United States in an area bounded by the Rockies on the west and the Appalachians in the east." To the best of our knowledge we have not seen a tornado in Israel during the past at least 50 years.
