Nowt to do with climate change or anything, simply that they'd revised the Fujita scale. Of course, the media (and some internet correspondents
) won't pick that up.....

The old scale:-

F0 < 73mph
F1 73-112mph
F2 113-157mph
F3 158-206mph
F4 207-260mph
F5 261-318mph

The New Scale (effective from Feb 2006):-

F0 65-85mph
F1 86-110mph
F2 110-135mph
F3 136-165mph
F4 166-200mph
F5 Over 200mph

So, what in 2005 would have been classified as a T3 will, could, in 2006, be labelled a F5.....!

we had some nasty tornadoes rip thru central florida a couple weeks ago

the NHC estimated winds 160-165 f3'ish on old scale

the wall on all/most houses in the effected areas were torn down to the foundation (very rare for central florida)

seems like more tornadoes tomorrow

Humm, why would they lower the tornado categories?

Now it would seem like we have stronger tornadoes than in the past.

It is to help with the Global Climate change hoax.

You know, manipulate the numbers.

We have had 45% increase in F5 tornadoes this year.

Oh, must be Global Warming or Climate Change.

Any reason why you dug up a 4 year old thread?

If you notice, besides changing the wind speed levels of tornadoes but they also introduced an enhanced damage indicator.

Sounds more like a much needed improvement to me.

More info on it here:

I dug it up after getting a response from him on one of my threads.

I like to check out people on past history posts to see if they are consistent.

4 years, holy Toledo, I had no idea.
