How long do tornadoes last?

When do tornadoes usually happen?

Late afternoons appear to be “prime time” for tornadoes. While the spiraling monsters can strike at any time of the day or night if weather conditions are optimal, more than 40 percent of all twisters are reported between 2 and 6 p.m. However, tornadoes that occur at night are common along the Gulf Coast.
