Hello I was wondering, how many tornadoes have occured since February 12, 2000.

Dear Johnnie-

Here is a web site where you can check the number and location of tornadoes every day. There is lots more information about severe storms at this site also.

This is an official site of the Storm Prediction Center of the National Weather Service. Just go to the "Storm Report Data for Past Days" and enter the date you're interested in. Data for the past 7 months is available here.
