    Doesn’t appear to happen very often:

    Finch and Dewan (Tornados in Bangladesh and East India). They found 85 tornadoes during the period of 1838 to 2001, 24 which killed at least 100 people. However, the nature of the information makes it difficult to put a good figure on the average annual number of tornadoes in the region, but it likely is no more than a handful.

    April 26, 1989, world’s deadliest tornado in history killed approximately 1,300. You don’t think of Bengladesh as tornado alley, but they have had 6 of the 10 deadliest tornadoes on record.
