Although it's mentioned by any character, a tornado is measured by its destructive force with the Fujita's Scale. It was named after Tetsuya Fujita, who in 1971 in collaboration with Allan Pearson created a scale to differentiate a twister according the wind speed:
F0: 60-117 km/h or 45-72 mph (light damage).
F1: 117-181 km/h or 73-112 mph (moderate damage).
F2: 181-250 km/h or 113-157 mph (significant damage).
F3: 250-320 km/h or 158-206 mph (severe damage).
F4: 320-420 km/h or 207-260 mph (devastating damage).
F5: 420-510 km/h or 261-308 mph (incredible damage).
F6: 510-610 km/h or 309-379 mph (altough initially Fujita scale have five marks, in 1999 a tornado located in Bridge CreekMoore, Oklahoma, devastated with a force more powerful never seen before. It was the only one F6 registered in history). See more »
During the last tornado sequence in the movie, when the storm warning siren was blaring, it is shown as a one-directional siren that doesn't rotate. Storm warning sirens are either omni-directional or one-directional sirens that rotate when activated. See more »
I just love the way cheap film producers see a new film coming and quickly hash together a 'suspiciously similar' flick. This came out on TV around the same time as Twister was arriving at cinemas. Some appallingly cheap effects, bargain basement acting and a 'pilfered' plot. Still, when you can see the cut out lines around the tornados you just know you're gonna love this film. Bruce Cambell takes a break from shooting dead people in the face and instead avoids spiralling winds by the skin of his teeth time after time after time after time after time after time after time. Go, on - get drunk and have a laff!
