Tornado Talk is a dynamic, information packed website devoted to tornado history! Our group of excellent researchers and writers have produced over 550 summaries detailing the amazing and often tragic stories that occur before, during and after a tornado event. We have connected with each, and every community written about, and we have many more stories to tell!

Tornado Talk is a break-even LLC. That means, we do not aim to make a profit on our work. Our goal is to offset the costs to maintain the business and compensate the hard work of the team of writers and researchers. To put together a summary for just ONE large tornado event, the team could work over 100 hours with research, writing, correspondence, reviewing and website work! We are all doing this while working other jobs and going to school.

To help keep Tornado Talk going and growing, we have joined Patreon! For as little as the cost of a cup of coffee per month, you can help support our work and become a member of the Tornado Talk team! Your monthly/yearly support helps us:
