Even though Oswego County is a low-risk area for tornadoes, it still has seen its fair share of the nasty storms. Here's a look at the history of tornadoes for this area...

Oswego County hasn't seen a lot of tornadoes, but they're still not the least-hit county in Central New York (Herkimer County still has them beat out by about a few). This area averages zero tornadoes a year, with only 25 being reported between 1950 and 2014. You can compare this average to other counties around Central New York at the link below:

According to data collected by Homefacts, most of the tornadoes that hit Oswego County are not very strong - coming in at an EF0 or EF1. That doesn't mean stronger storms haven't happened - There are two reports of F3 tornadoes. Surprisingly, not a single F2 (or EF2) tornado has been reported in the county.

One death has occurred from tornadoes in this area, but ten people have been injured (and not all in the same storm). That deadly tornado hit on May 2, 1983 and had an F3 rating.
