    Not down playing hurricanes but the direct damage from tornadoes are far more vicious. It’s immediate and very unpredictable. Thank god they have a short life and a fairly narrow path. Been around 3. Illinois.

    Hurricanes been through two now and it’s slow, a week to prepare. They’ve been like baby tornados on a massive scale with a ocean stored above them with a leaking shower head.

    They both suck, tornadoes are only worse if you’re in it’s path. A hurricane is causing contact everywhere. Imagine a hurricane on a tornado schedule damn it be scary...

    Tornado
    Fujita scale
    F0 < 73 mph Light damage
    F1 73–112 mph Moderate damage
    F2 113–157 mph Considerable damage
    F3 158–206 mph Severe damage
    F4 207–260 mph Devastating damage
    F5 261–318 mph Incredible damage

    What has hit the Bahamas is widespread, long lasting, and devastating.
    185mph wind, 220 MPH gusts.

    That’s an F4 tornado on a yuge scale, ladies and gentlemen.

    They are reporting a lot of bodies floating. I fear a really gruesome death toll in the Bahamas

    Track they are showing now has the hurricane force winds staying over the ocean. Tropical storm winds are nothing to sneeze at, but beats getting blasted by 185+ winds.

    Much like Sumatra after the earthquake. It was absolutely horrible. I won't be forgetting that anytime soon.

    stay the hell outta here then! lol

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya, we've got some friends with a nice house right on the beach in NC that's looking down the barrel of this thing too. A 1 or 2 would be ok, a 3 is iffy but a 4 or 5 their place isn't gonna do so well

    Don't forget hurricanes can be pretty good at producing tornadoes as well. The prolonged beating you take it what makes them so bad. Even at lower category strength when they just sit on you they pound away until the weakest link gives way.

    I can't imagine it's going to be good news. The videos I've seen the structures aren't all that well made and they had nowhere to go. Hell one place they were talking about the highest point of elevation being something around 22-25 feet and they were getting 20' storm surge. There was plenty of footage in areas that hadn't flooded and cars were flipped upside.

    When a tornado forms and hits an F5 you are looking at 300 mph winds and mile wide funnels and it's ****ing intense. Your asshole puckers regardless of shelter and if kids are involved it's something you can imagine and when walking away and looking at everything is basically asking what a war soldier what they see after a nuke bomb went off

    We don't use the Fujita scale anymore.
    We moved to the enhanced Fujita scale in '07 and it better accounts for variations in damage due to various building materials and construction methods.
    The SPC in Norman, OK also has a dedicated team that visits, accesses, surveys and eventually rates all the tornado damage nationwide. Keeps the data consistent.


    EF0 65–85 mph Light damage
    EF1 86–110 mph Moderate damage
    EF2 111–135 mph Considerable damage
    EF3 136–165 mph Severe damage
    EF4 166–200 mph Devastating damage
    EF5 >200 mph Incredible damage

    The Enhanced Fujita Scale (EF Scale)

    I've seen what <260mph wind could do,
    and <200.

    At 200 everything is destroyed but there are still piles of debris. (Greensburg '07 EF5)
    At 260, it's wiped clean, just foundations. Even scoured asphalt roads (Andover 4-26-'91 F5)

    I saw what an EF3 could do in June 2011 up in Massachusetts- flat out leveled forests and buildings. If that's an EF3, an EF4-5 must be insane.

    Also, I saw last night that Dorian was stationary and the sea level beneath it was 8-10'? Thankfully it was downgraded to Cat3

    Wait, so an EF5 "only" has to break 200mph, now?

    Pff....weak.

    Anyhow, all you Florida folks, stay as safe as you can. Don't wanna read any threads on here about people we lost.
