The record-breaking December in the United States continues

That frightening night Devastated the Midwestern United States It holds the record for most hurricanes to form in a single day (61 confirmed) in the United States between December 10 and 11. A tragic record, which lasted very little: five days after the new wave of bad weather hit the Cornbelt States, especially in the Iowa area and topped the rankings.

Inside, thunderstorms and hurricanes can form, which often cause hurricanes. On the night of the 15th, only 43 were confirmed in the state of Iowa, 17 of which were classified as Ef2 (1 higher than the previous U.S. record, recorded on 7 June 1984).

Derechos are relatively rare cases. The corn belt from Minnesota to Iowa is common in the United States, but they are largely unknown during the winter months: they usually attack in late spring and summer, when temperatures are high from May to August. Create the right conditions for the summer storm.
