The climate of the United States of America
The United States of America is a very large country with a lot of states and a lot of different climate types. The climate types in America vary from a cold tundra climate to a tropical rainforest climate; almost every climate type in between these two occurs as well in America. Large differences in temperatures and precipitation figures can also be recorded. The northwestern part is wet, the southeast fairly wet and Central America is very dry. As this is such a large country we show the information per state. Specific climate information is shown for certain cities and regions.

Tornadoes
Whirlwinds or tornadoes occur fairly often in America. The Central part of the United States east from the Rocky Mountains (Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska) has the biggest risk of getting hit by this phenomenon. This region gets hit by a tornado about one thousand times per year.

Hurricanes
Almost the entire east coast and the southeast run the risk of getting hit by a hurricane. Most hurricanes occur in Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and Louisiana. The hurricane season is from June till November. During this period about 5-10 hurricanes can be recorded in the Caribbean, some of which may cause a lot of damage. Because hurricanes can be predicted days in advance as well as the path a hurricane follows precautions can be taken. These precautions vary from boarding up windows to evacuating entire areas.
