A Tornado in a City

A tornado, or twister, are whirling masses of rising warm air, set spinning by high winds. Wherever they strike, they leave a trail of destruction. Air pressure at the center is so low, the air rushes into the funnel at enormous speed, sucking up people, cars, and even whole trains. Is a violent rotating column of air which is in contact with both the Earth's surface and a cumulonimbus cloud. Meteorologists have two scales to use to rate the intensity of a tornado:

Fujita Scale

F0 40 - 72 mph (64 - 116 km/h) Light Damage
F1 73 - 112 mph (117 - 180 km/h) Moderate Damage
F2 113 - 157 mph (181 253 km/h) Considerible Damage
F3 158 - 206 mph (254 - 332 km/h) Severe Damage
F4 207 - 260 mph (333 - 418 km/h) Devastating Damage
F5 261 - 318 mph (419 - 512 km/h) Total Damage






Enhanced Fujita Scale

EF0 65 - 85 mph (105 - 137 km/h) Light Damage
EF1 86 - 110 mph (138 - 178km/h) Moderate Damage
EF2 111 - 135 mph (179 - 218 km/h) Considerible Damage
EF3 136 - 165 mph (219 - 266 km/h) Severe Damage
EF4 166 - 200 mph (267 - 322 km/h) Devastating Damage
EF5 Greater Than 200 mph (Greater Than 322 km/h) Explosive Damage
