Question: We're soon to enter tornado weather season in Eastern and Central North Carolina. Are there any statistics on the likelihood that one's home would be in a direct line for a direct hit? I'm relating this to the seemingly high improbability on a direct hit by lightning in any given area of activity. I don't mean to belittle anyone's trauma if they've ever experienced a tornado or lightning strike or cause people not to be cautious. But given the F-1 or lower categories of tornadoes which we normally see around here and their small area of coverage and their time on the ground, I was just curious about statistical probabilities? — T.

Question: I live in Dunn NC. According to a website I found, we are rated pretty high on our risk for tornadoes.
