1985 in general was such a crazy tornado year, thanks for sharing that video. I do know there was at least one tornado in the USSR during the same year, albeit nowhere near as destructive as the 1984 event.
Also there is an Wikipedia article on this 1985 tornado that mentions another tornado from 1874, bringing the total to 4 tornadoes, although am still to find any other references about this event!

Also, Canoinhas, Brazil was hit in 1948 and in 2013:

Video about the 2013 event.

Actually. I think, at least here in Brazil you have a bunch of cities that were hit multiple times:
São Francisco de Paula 2003 and 2017
Campinas, 1995 and 2016
(Watch until the end)
Etc…

Braggadocio, MO (Pemiscot County) was where the paths of the April 2006 Marmaduke-Caruthersville F3 (shoulda-been F4) and 12/10/21 Tri-state EF4 crossed. Two died there in a vehicle in the 2006 event, and a nine-year-old girl died there in the more recent tornado.

I voted OKC and Tanner. Kind of tough specifying cities, but hard to argue that these areas aren't where overall you'll likely see the most and the most intense tornadoes through history. Of them all, north central AL is the last place I'd want to be in tornado season due to limited visibility and sparse population outside of cities to confirm what radar might indicate as a tornado.
