NORMAN, Okla. (KFOR) – A little more than a week after EF-1 tornadoes tore through parts of Oklahoma, officials with the National Weather Service say a record has been broken.

On Wednesday, the National Weather Service in Norman says it has confirmed 146 tornadoes so far this year.

Now, 2019 holds the record for the most tornadoes recorded in a single year in Oklahoma.
