After a series of tornadoes that hit Florida in 2007
President Bush designated four central Florida counties as disaster
areas, that released millions of dollars in aid helping residents
recover from the tornados that tore through the region, leaving many
dead. This was the second deadliest tornado event in Florida state
history, amazing since it was not associated with any hurricane.
Also in February of 2007 at least one tornado touched down in Dumas,
Arkansas injuring several people but there were not fatalities.
There may have been another tornado in the area but it was not able
