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 »
The Fujita Scale is not a "Wind Damage Scale." Instead, it is used to record the damage intensity done by a tornado; the wind speed is an estimate. This is evidenced further when Dr. Branson shows Sam an "F4." The F4 (which was taken in Ash Valley, KS in 1974) was classified as an F2 based on its damage, not by its size or wind speed. See more »
Get real. Any movie starring Bruce Campbell is expected to be a B-movie. The COOL thing about that here is that instead of its counterpart, Twister, they decided on something that looked real, rather than something that looked exciting. I haven't seen Twister since I saw it in the theater. It blew, and I didn't give a crap about any of the characters or the story. As far as I'm concerned, THEY ripped THIS off, and made it a "sensation" of CGI crap. The characters are more believable, as are the effects and the story. I may have rated this a 6, but Twister is about a 2...and only because of the flying cow and Bill Paxton is it not a 1.
