Question by Maximillian: What kind of meteorology creates tornadoes?
Why is tornadoes always happening only in America?
Answer by Mark V
Tornadoes can happen anywhere in the world. Tornado Alley in the US is famous, but even just in our country, they can happen anywhere. A few years ago, there was a small one north of me in Los Angeles, and a few years before that, there was a pretty big one that hit Salt Lake City.
However, while tornadoes occur in many parts of the world, they are admittedly found most frequently in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, during the spring and summer months, generated through supercell thunderstorms.
The majority of tornadoes occur in agricultural areas. Tornadoes need moisture to feed their parent thunderstorms and the instability associated with spring and summer warming. Crops need moisture to grow and the temperature variation associated with changing seasons. Both conditions for tornadoes and agricultural growth are found in the same areas, from the US Tornado Alley, within European agricultural zones, and even on into western Asia.
