Britain, tornado capital of the world?

Not quite, it seems, the Netherlands beats the UK on number of tornadoes reported per square mile.

At least according to the BBC report.

Mind you, the US has far more powerful ones.

Back in 1976, when I saw one off the south coast, I didn't believe what I was seeing - as far as I knew, we didn't get them. (OK, so it was a waterspout, being over the sea, but the same thing.)
