No tornadoes reported anywhere across US in March

March 20, 2015

TULSA, (AP) — The U.S. appears to be locked in a tornado drought as meteorologists have recorded only about two-dozen twisters so far this year during a period when 100 or more are typical.
And there have been no reports of tornadoes so far in March — a sometimes violent period for severe weather. The last time there were no tornadoes in March was 1969.
Forecasters at NOAA's Storm Prediction Center in Norman have issued only four tornado watches and no severe thunderstorm watches — less than 10 percent of the average 52 tornado watches issued by mid-March.

According to news reports, the birds were migrating to nesting grounds in Alaska.
Wild life employees said about 20 bald eagles also were seen near the scene of the dead geese but it is unclear if the eagles could be infected due to the lengthy incubation period.
