      Alabama now tops the list for the most EF-5 tornadoes in the nation, since 1950.

      Last month, the National Weather Service{}upgraded an April 27th tornado in DeKalb County from EF-4 to an EF-5 category to give the state seven EF-5 tornadoes since 1950. That's when the Weather Service began keeping such records.

      Before that, Alabama had been tied with Texas, Oklahoma, Iowa and Kansas with six EF-5 tornadoes.
