Definitions for "Fujita Scale"
A scale of Tornado Damage in which wind speeds are interpolated from the amount of damage done. The scale ranges from an F0 (light damage, winds 72mph) to an F5 (incredible damage, winds 260mph). It is a misconception that a tornado can be given a number while it is still on the ground.
System developed by Dr. Theodore Fujita to classify tornadoes based on wind damage. Scale is from F0 for weakest to F5 for strongest tornadoes.
Wind damage scale devised by Theodore Fujita.
