When tornadoes hit, they are often quick, deadly and come without warning.
In 2013, more than fifty people were killed during tornadoes.
“We have tornadoes at daytime, we have tornadoes at night,” said Dev Niyogi, a climatologist at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Now, researchers at Purdue say there are certain areas that may be more likely than others to be hit by tornadoes.
“The region just around the city becomes a hotspot for where a tornado can occur,” explained Niyogi.
