F0 and F1

F0: “Gale Tornado”. Has wind speeds of 40-72 MPH. Causes some damage to chimneys and breaks branches off of trees.

F1: “Moderate Tornado”. Has wind speeds of 73-112 MPH. Peels off the surface of roofs, mobile homes are pushed off their foundations, and moving cars are pushed off the road

F4 and f5
F4 and F5

F4: “Devastating Tornado”. Has wind speeds of 207-260 MPH. Houses are destroyed and cars are thrown.

F5: “Incredible Tornado”. Has wind speeds of 261-318 MPH. Houses lifted off their foundations and thrown, car sized objects are thrown, and trees are debarked.
