NOAA: May second wettest month in US history

If it seems like there have been more floods and tornadoes than normal lately there’s a good reason for that. There have been — by a lot. 

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, May was the second wettest month in the US since record keeping began. 

That’s 125 years! 

Taking a longer view, the past 12 month period has been the wettest ever recorded. 

Part of that is due to massive thunderstorms that also produced a huge number of tornadoes — more than 500.
