   What is the longest known time that a single tornado has been on the ground in the United States?

   The longest track tornado in U.s. recorded history goes back to March 18, 1925.  The Tri-State Tornado tore through Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana killing 695 people.  It was the deadliest on record as well.  The killer was on the ground for 219 miles lasting 3.5 hours.
