  1. Andy Weiss says:

    Bangladesh has had some of the deadliest tornadoes. People don’t think of them as Oklahoma, but they get some bad ones. Also high population concentration and poor construction makes them vulnerable to high fatalities.

    Just googled, the world’s deadliest tornado was in Bangladesh during April 1989. Approximately 1,300 fatalites.
