There were fewer tornado deaths in the U.S. this year than there have been in decades.
Tornadoes killed 17 Americans in 2016, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association's Storm Prediction Center. That's the second lowest tornado death toll since 1950.
The lowest number of people killed by tornadoes since 1950 was in 1986 when twisters killed 15 people.
The reason behind 2016's relatively uneventful tornado season is still unclear.
Five years ago, tornadoes killed over 550 people nationwide.
