The 2018 US tornado season was the first ever recorded to give storms actual names (if the twisters lasted more than fifteen minutes). The strongest was an EF5 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was named Jordan. Names don't go in alphabetical order, like tropical cyclones, they just have random names. Only major storms are listed.
