None.
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

Where wind doesn't exist? Not in any U.S. state. Probably not anywhere on this planet, for that matter. Wind is a basic element of the atmosphere: if you have difference in temperature, you end up with wind.

But if you want no hurricanes and no tornadoes, your best bet is probably Washington State. The cold currents keep hurricanes well south. Ocean influences and windward mountains ensure that it's far more difficult to form tornadoes.

Though they still have wind events.

Pacific Northwest windstorm

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pacific Northwest windstorms, sometimes colloquially known as Big Blows,[1] are extratropical cyclones which form in the Pacific basin, and affect land areas in the Pacific Northwest of the United States and British Columbia, Canada. They form as cyclonic windstorms associated with areas of low atmospheric pressure that track across the North Pacific Ocean towards western North America. Deep low pressure areas are relatively common over the North Pacific. They are most common in the winter months. On average, the month when most windstorms form is December.

Washington just had a tornado that destroyed more than a dozen homes.  We have an average of 2 a year, though rarely much damage.

Nope.  WA  has a vert temperate climate, extremes dont happen, rarely touching the teens in the dead of winter nor upper 90s in Summer at least in western WA, but winter will get you lots of rain, and a few wind storms with just an occasional snow fall. Now the mountains is a different story with 16 feet of snow possible.

The only place on Earth that is without wind is under the ocean, and even they have currents (which is a type of wind). However, there is a place where the streets have no name. Bono has been there.

A place with no wind. Why would anyone want that. What would wave a Flag, fly a kite, blow away stagnant smelly air, provide comfort on a hot summer day.
 Now if you are looking for states with less chances of damaging tornadoes, yes the NW  or Alaska is it, but we are not without damaging wind storms, earthquakes, and remembering 1980 volcanos.

I did some looking and that indeed is one of the lowest rates of tornadoes in the nation.

New England is the only other area of the country with less, but I suspect part of that is simply because they're so geographically small. Tornado touchdowns are like throwing at a dartboard, and a bigger state under the same conditions is going to have more of them than a tiny state like Rhode Island.

Population density may affect reporting in some states as well. Parts of Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas could have tornadoes no one even sees.

The Appalachian hills have few tornadoes. We have lots of wind. Gusts up to 50mph happen frequently in the winter but we usually avoid extremes.

I just learned that tornados form ground up, so I guess that makes the title of this thread moot.

Too much wind can do the same. The Rockies are pretty free of tornadoes, because the wind shear is crazy in the mountains - In some forty years here, I have only seen two, and both of those were water spouts over the big lake - and died close to shore. Conditions where a tornado could survive to touch down would have to be literally perfect.

If you want to know where most strong tornadoes (F5) hit, it is North Alabama. Some triangle in North Bama has the most tornadoes per year in the space allotted. Lets just say, I would not care to live on Sand Mountain. Alabama also claims the most tornado deaths...

You know I live in Texas also.  Years ago, it was so hot, I looked for a cool place in the United States and was going to pack a bag and go there; I seriously was.  THERE WAS NO COOL PLACE IN THE U.S. AT THAT TIME.  I was surprised I had no place to go - turned down the air conditioner and didn't go out unless it was important.
