Has there ever been a tornado in Branson, Missouri? Obviously, I know Joplin but in the city of Branson?

We have the siren tornado warnings but I thought tornados only stay on flat land and not in areas with hills or mountains (not that we have mountains but we have hills). thanks

    Branson-area historical tornado activity is near Missouri state average. It is 81% greater than the overall U.S. average.

    On 11/29/1991, a category 4 (max. wind speeds 207-260 mph) tornado 32.1 miles away from the Branson city center killed 2 people and injured 64 people and caused between $5,000,000 and $50,000,000 in damages.

    On 3/24/1954, a category 3 (max. wind speeds 158-206 mph) tornado 23.7 miles away from the city center injured 2 people and caused between $5000 and $50,000 in damage.

    I dont think it matters if the area has hills or mountains, I think it all matters on the climate.
