Thank you for your information.
We live in Henderson NV.
Don't think I could handle the tornado threat.
We are leaning toward a move to Prescott AZ.
Still desert but much cooler than here.
We have a couple of years before we retire.
- still researching.
Thanks again

yeah we have them, but there really aren't that many in number, and most of those don't cause much damage. Now here is a stat:

well if you can't handle it you are probably right, there might be better places for you, but Tornados are not nearly as common as you might think, or shoul we say bad ones. We live in NWA, have been here 2 years, never had a real damaging one. We lived in Texas for 13 years and never had one in our area, but they did do some damage not far from us. Of course I was raised in So Calif. We lived though 2 or 3 pretty scary earthquakes. No matter where you live there is the possibility of a natural disaster.

If any of you are hesitating to move to AR because of the tornado's, put that out of your mind. Your much more likely to get injured or killed in your daily drive on the streets and highways than injured or killed by a tornado in AR. Come on, if you try us you will like us.
