26 sec read

“The Enhanced Fujita scale (abbreviated as EF-Scale) rates tornado intensity based on the severity of the damage they cause. It is used in some countries, including the United States, Canada, China, and Mongolia.

“The Enhanced Fujita scale replaced the decommissioned Fujita scale that was introduced in 1971 by Ted Fujita.[1] Operational use began in the United States on February 1, 2007, followed by Canada on April 1, 2013.[2][3][4]

“It has also been proposed for use in France.[5][needs update]
