From the Paper:

"In 2012 there has been a particularly notable rash of tornado outbreaks in the United States. These storms struck many states in the Midwest and the Southeast and wreaked havoc on residential and commercial properties all over the affected areas. The tornado outbreaks were recorded from February 28th through April and resulted in a notable number of deaths, home, business, and structure damage when the outbreak finally came to an end. The purpose of this paper is to examine these 2012 tornado outbreaks and the details surrounding them."
