Default Weather in Bowling Green Kentucky

I am considering moving to Bowling Green, KY.

How often do tornadoes hit the Bowling Green area?

How often is there flooding due to rain NOT related to tornadoes?

Area there suburbs or specific areas hit more by flooding and tornadoes?

What type of building construction is the safest?

I worry a lot.

What is important for me to know about Bowling green weather
in general?

Generally the worst tornadoes stay south of BG and even there your chances of getting hit are extremely low.

The greatest natural threat in BG by far is sinkholes, as it is in the world's most cave friendly soil in the world. The largest, 3rd largest, and 7th largest cave systems in the world are located just NE of BG

Very true about the sinkholes, we had one just about that size in our back yard when I was kid. The only way we realized it was there was that the grass started to die in a circle right in the center of it. Me, being the curious type, took a baseball bat and started pushing the on the area and much to my surprise there was hole the size of a small room under there.

We do get some pretty bad storms with tornado activity at certain times of the year, mostly spring. It can be scary. Buy a house with a basement if you are really concerned. Don't buy a mobile home. Flooding is not really much of an issue in most of the city anymore. We used to have some road flood and such but that has been improved on.
