"Tornado Drought" Continues Despite Yesterday's Activity...

There were two tornado reports yesterday in the Elmira, NY area. This brings the total (preliminary) number of tornadoes for July, 2012 to 15, which keeps us in record territory for an inactive July.

I suspect that once the storm survey is complete in Elmira it will be determined that this was really two reports of one in the same tornado (if that is in fact what it was and not just wind damage), which would bring the July total down to 14.  I'll have a detailed post up concerning the Elmira area damage later this morning or early this afternoon.
