Enhanced Fujita Scale: Know The Facts
Just about everyone who has ever feared a destructive tornado has also heard of the Enhanced Fujita Scale. At the most basic level the scale was devised to help rate the strength of tornadoes in the United States and Canada. First introduced in 1971 as the Fujita Scale by severe storms researcher, Tetsuya Theodore “Ted” Fujita, the scale underwent a revision of sorts in recent years to better align wind speed with associated storm damage. This visual is one of our favorites because it is so easy to identify and understand the different levels of tornado damage.Survive-a-Storm believes that the old saying is true: knowledge is power.
