Abstract

The 39 tornado occurrences associated with the four hurricanes which struck the United States during 1964 are shown to favor a location in the right front quadrant of the storm. A distribution of hurricane tornadoes over the past 10 yr. is presented, also favoring the right front quadrant. Some suggestion of a preference for afternoon formation is rejected because a time bias was noted in reports from hurricane Isabell.
