  1. Interesting !I have a question raegrding the way tornado strength is determined. I note that wind speed is discussed as a barometer of strength, however it doesn’t appear to take into account the torque and suction forces inherent in the rotation. Or does it? Does the Enhanced Fujita scale take that into account and that is why it is enhanced ? It seems to me that stating that the tornado in MA this week had 160 mph winds (which hurricanes can have and do not produce the same kind of damage per se) does not do justice to the extreme force and damage that I had witnessed in Monson today on a drive through. Seeing that path up and over the ridgelines certainly dispells the myth that they can’t travell over hilly terrain .amazing damage. surreal.
