Although most people think of spring as the time for severe weather, fall is the country’s second severe weather season.

“This is the second peak of their season for tornadoes,” FOX Weather meteorologist Steve Bender said.

Bender said severe weather in the fall can be more dangerous because of shorter days making tornadoes in the dark more likely.
