For the second consecutive year, Kansas led the nation with the most recorded tornadoes.

Officials say 187 twisters touched down in Kansas during the year.

That's far more the 116 reported in runner-up Texas and 50 more than the previous state record, set in 2007.

While the national numbers haven't been completed for November and December, Kansas' numbers have been verified.

The Memorial Day storms were responsible for two of the four deaths in Kansas tornadoes last year.
