Since the 1950's, which is as far back in time as data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration extends, there has been "little trend in the frequency" of strong-to-violent tornadoes. This same trend also applies to data from the U.S. National Weather Service on fatalities from tornadoes, hurricanes, and floods.
