That is the same kind of lightning we had in the DFW area last night too. VERY strange...just flashing and flashing but no sound. I took a video of it. Maybe if I have time tonight I will try to get it uploaded to youtube.
 Quoting: CowgirlK


It is strange. Is what you saw like a camera flash (but huge)? I'm used to seeing just your basic bolt, up and down or side to side when a storm is approaching. When it's right on top of us, I see the flash and hear the crack at the same time. But tonight the light was bright enough to be on top of us, but it took a while before the sound arrived and when it did it rumbled on and on and everything was rattling. I went on Twitter and people were describing it like a bomb exploding.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 348800



I too noticed the flashing kind of lightning that lit up the area, but without the typical type of thunder normally associated with lightning!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18951354


Yes..It was like non stop camera flashing without the lightning cracking sounds. It was like something out of a end of the world movie. It freaked me out.
 Quoting: CowgirlK


Exactly, and instead of cloud to ground, what I saw seemed to already be at ground level. I've never seen anything like that.

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0147
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0932 PM CST SUN FEB 10 2013

AREAS AFFECTED...SE LA...SRN MS...SRN AL...WRN FL
PANHANDLE...EXTREME SW GA

CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 33...34...

VALID 110332Z - 110500Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 33...34...CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...EARLIER SUPERCELLS HAVE WEAKENED AND MOST NEW STORM
DEVELOPMENT WILL OCCUR ALONG AND TO THE COOL SIDE OF THE RAIN-COOLED
BOUNDARY FROM SE LA/SRN MS ACROSS SRN AL. THUS...THE TORNADO AND
DAMAGING WIND THREAT IS DIMINISHING /ASIDE FROM A NARROW CORRIDOR IN
SE MS/SW AL/...WITH TRAINING CONVECTION AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL
BECOMING MORE OF A CONCERN.

DISCUSSION...THE INTENSE SUPERCELLS EARLIER THIS EVENING ACROSS SE
MS/SW AL HAVE WEAKENED...AND WARM SECTOR DEVELOPMENT HAS LIKEWISE
DIMINISHED AS SURFACE COOLING COMMENCES. ADDITIONALLY...THE LLJ HAS
VEERED GRADUALLY FROM SWLY TO WSWLY AS SPEEDS SLOWLY WEAKEN...AND
THIS TREND WILL CONTINUE OVERNIGHT. STILL...THE COMBINATION OF
VERTICAL SHEAR AND BUOYANCY REMAINS SUFFICIENT FOR SOME TORNADO RISK
ALONG THE RAIN-COOLED BOUNDARY...PRIMARILY FROM LAMAR COUNTY MS TO
CLARKE COUNTY AL/.

IN THE LONGER TERM...THE SCENARIO IS BECOMING LESS SUPPORTIVE OF
LONG-LIVED SEVERE STORMS/TORNADOES...AND MORE SUPPORTIVE OF TRAINING
CONVECTION ALONG AND IMMEDIATELY TO THE COOL SIDE OF THE COMPOSITE
BOUNDARY NOW FROM OZR TO BETWEEN MOB/GZH TO NEAR BTR. THE UPSTREAM
FEED OF WEAK-MODERATE INSTABILITY FROM SRN LA WILL SUPPORT SOME RISK
FOR ISOLATED LARGE HAIL AND/OR DAMAGING GUSTS WITH SLIGHTLY ELEVATED
STORMS N OF THE BOUNDARY...BUT THAT RISK WILL BE MORE MARGINAL WITH
TIME AND PROBABLY WILL NOT WARRANT ADDITIONAL TORNADO WATCHES AFTER
05Z. MEANWHILE...THE STORMS PROGRESSING FROM SE AL INTO SW GA ARE
MOVING E OF THE UNSTABLE WARM SECTOR WELL BACK TO THE W/SW...AND THE
STORMS SHOULD WEAKEN IN THE NEXT HOUR OR SO.

Really, it looks to be fairly constant for the last 20 years with 03, 08, and 11 being extreme peaks (in descending order).

I'm not sure how much of that goes into the fact that reporting and data gathering have gotten much better though than it was in years prior. (By that I mean prior to 20 years ago.)

From that NOAA article though: (MUCH, MUCH less than 50% quoted)

Overall, most tornadoes (around 77 percent) in the U.S. are considered weak (EF0 or EF1) and about 95 percent of all U.S. tornadoes are below EF3 intensity. The remaining small percentage of tornadoes are categorized as violent (EF3 and above). Of these violent twisters, only a few (0.1 percent of all tornadoes) achieve EF5 status, with estimated winds over 200 mph and nearly complete destruction. However, given that on average over 1000 tornadoes hit the U.S. each year, that means that 20 can be expected to be violent and possibly one might be incredible (EF5).


So if it's an EF2, it's still within about 20% of the common range. I'll grant you though, the video of the funnel looked fairly impressive.
