Tornadoes are most frequent in the US, but occasionally occur in other countries occasionally too. Listed below are storms that have been documented well enough to ascertain that they were tornadic. You can read more about worldwide tornadoes in the book "The Tornado, Nature's Ultimate Windstorm" by Tom Grazulis. If you know of a tornado that occurred in this country and can provide documentation for it, we will be happy to add it to this page. If you have a photo of this tornado, we would like to post it here. If you know of another page that has information on the tornadoes in this country, we would be happy to add a link to it.

What may have been Panama's worst killer tornado hit the southeast edge of Panama City. As electric power lines were severed, people ran into the street from a garment factory. They ran back inside the building when they saw the tornado approaching. The poorly constructed concrete block building collapsed, killing as many as 12 workers and injuring at least 50 others.
