With all of the current election maps showing states in various colors, now is a good time to show one with Iowa in the lead. This map presents an unofficial totaling of unfiltered NWS Local Storm Reports of tornadoes by state. The major caveat here is that these are not official totals of tornadoes. The official tornado totals take a number of months to curate and it may turn out that Iowa has not seen the most tornadoes of any state so far this year. Putting that aside, Iowa has likely seen more tornadoes this year than classic tornado alley states of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Good = 11
