The small town of Codell, Kansas, was hit by a tornado on the same date three consecutive years. A tornado hit on May 20, 1916, 1917, and 1918. The U.S. has about 100,000 thunderstorms a year; less than 1% produce a tornado. The odds of this coincidence occurring again is extremely small.
A small town in northern Alabama, Tanner, was hit by an F5 tornado on April 3, 1974 during the Super Outbreak and was struck again 45 minutes later by at least a high-end F4 (some sources say F5), demolishing what remained of the town. 37 years later, on April 27, 2011, during what some meteorologists have dubbed Super Outbreak II, Tanner was hit yet again by the EF5 Hackleburg tornado, producing high-end EF4 damage in the southern portion of town.
