Weather 101: EF0 and EF1 Tornadoes

Weather 101

KNWA/KFTA- Join Meteorologist Rick Katzfey as he starts a series on the Enhanced Fujita Scale for tornado damage.

This video will cover the difference between an EF0 and an EF1 tornado. We explain the wind speeds necessary to categorize a tornado as well as show you some of the damage that these types of tornadoes can create.

Most of the tornadoes that come through our region remain either EF0 or EF1 strength. Even though these tornadoes are on the lower end of the scale they can still produce quite a bit of damage. Click on the video to learn more!

Hope you have learned a little bit about the Enhanced Fujita Scale from this segment of Weather 101. As always you can send us your questions and any topics you want us to cover to our email

Stay safe and healthy!
