Goofs 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 »
