1. What is Tornado Talk?

We love tornadoes. We also love history. We figured we'd put the two together and create an interactive database like no other focusing on tornado history.

2. Can I use your maps and photos on social media/blogs?

Absolutely, as long as the graphic has our logo and/or our name somewhere on the it (ex: © 2017 Tornado Talk)! All we ask in return is you include a link to our website and/or tag us on Twitter/Facebook, and to use our graphics with moderation. Be wary - we may have other photos and graphics licensed to us to only be posted/shared on this website.

3. Where's the podcast? Are you coming out with any additional episodes?

Unfortunately, we will not be releasing any more episodes. However, we do have our podcasts archived online on our YouTube page!

4. I want to contribute to Tornado Talk. How can I?

First off, we want to thank you for wanting to contribute to this on-going project. We want to be your #1 source for tornado history, and we'd love to have you on board to help out. Here is how you can contribute:

Send us something tornado-related

If you've chased, been through a tornado, or want to share a tornado tidbit, send us a message! We would love for your story and/or tornado-related tidbit to be displayed on this website. We promise we don't bite!

Become a guest blogger

Do you have a story you'd like to post on our website? We allow guest blogging (and encourage it)! We'd love to hear from you - send us your pitch today!

Donate to help offset our costs

We'll be honest - we've invested a little over $500 of our own money into this project. By donating, you'll help offset recurring monthly/yearly fees such as domain renewal.


1. How long can I expect to wait for my purchase to arrive?

We suggest giving it 3-5 business days (Monday - Friday, not including weekends and holidays). Sometimes, shipments can take up to two weeks. If you have not received your order within 2 weeks, please contact us ASAP.


2. What's your shipping policy?

When you purchase an item, we ask that you give it at least 4 business days to ship after fufillment. We offer free shipping because you deserve it. It's also important to note that we don't ship internationally. However, if you live internationally and want to purchase an item from us, please contact us first before placing your order.


3. I want to return an item. How do I go about this?

We're sorry you want to return your item. We don't want you to go through an automated system - contact us within 15 days of your purchase and we will get everything sorted out. Do note we can not accept returns because you ordered the wrong size - we can only accept returns if the item is damaged or misprinted.
