I believe that the answers already published are very reflective of our area. We have had an increase of what is called a "thundernado by some. Powerful burst of energy from a thunderhead cloud or storm send blast of wind down hard and this can cause down trees and sometimes storage buildings or even a house can be affected by this. If your looking for a safe place here in the TN valley, it can't be guaranteed, but we do have a much safer area from storms, to live in, than many other parts of the US. Weather can be hard to predict in an area like ours because of the geographic location of our mountain ranges, but we have some very dedicated news staff at the various TV stations who I give credit to for their attempt at putting their skill at predicting at work. I think my wife watch's the weather more than anyone I know, my daughter has gotten so good with reading the weather radar on her cell phone that she can say, its going to hit us in a few minutes and sure enough down will come the storm. I have lived in the area 28 years so know the area 's weather moods and areas of flooding, and typical storm areas well. If your relocating here and want to choose your next home based on the way the weather is I doubt any agent can give you the assurance of safety from a storm, but there might be some information we can share on parts of our area that would be of interest to you. One interesting fact about our area is that the city of Chattanooga backs up to a large mountain range at the area of "Look Out Mountain and Signal Mountain" and a smaller range at the area of Missionary Ridge, and then a long Mountain Range called White Oak Mountain. Storms coming from Nashville area often hit the Cumberland Mountain ranges and bounce or go around us. Storms coming from the Gulf areas seem to run right between the Mountains as if they were sucked through them. We often get the most rain when it comes from that direction. The geographic arrangement of the Mountain ranges create a unique effect in our area. The high level wind is pushed quickly over the top of the mountains, creating a barrier for air between the mountains. It works like a dome that prevents or blocks full evacuation of air and air exchange from the area under the dome of higher air, often pushing back and recirculating the air that is under the higher wind. This can be a nice protection from storms coming to us from the sides of these mountain ranges that offer a buffer and protection, the bad part about that is that often time the air is not allowed to circulate and so we don't get replenished fresh air under the dome of wind. This is why its hard for weather people to truly predict what will happen... ... more
