We usually travel to Pigeon Forge in late Oct., early Nov., but this year we are planning to arrive mid-Apr. and stay for a week. With all the tornadoes hitting in the Indiana area, I thought it might be prudent to ask if there are ever any tornados in the Pigeon Forge area? I would love to see the Smokies in the Spring, and we come down from Canada on the I-81, so just wondered if there is a tornado danger and how severe it is. Can anyone help?
