I recently visited risk modeling firm AIR Worldwide to learn about the latest updates to their severe thunderstorm model. This model covers straight line wind storms, tornadoes and hail storms and had last been updated five years ago. There was a lack of historical data on these types of storms. Until recently, we didn’t have the technology to properly document and use information about a tornado or severe thunderstorm outbreak. In the past ten years, science has been able to generate new ways to better track wind storms, including tornadoes.
