Ohio's EMA ranks the state within the top 20 in the nation for fatalities, injuries and dollar losses, indicating it has "a relatively high likelihood for damages resulting from tornadoes."

Between 1950 and 2000, 731 tornados have struck the state, with 330 of them packing winds between 86 and 110 miles per hour -- resulting in what's commonly called EF2 tornadoes.

Ohio tornadoes have resulted in more than 200 deaths and 4,000 injuries.
