This is just a quick update on the Moore, Oklahoma tornado. The National Weather Service has been surveying the damage across Oklahoma today. Here is their latest analysis.

Notice that the damage survey is still ongoing, so additional information will be coming in over the next few days, as they have a lot of distance to cover. A report put out by the National Weather Service says that the tornado initially produced EF-0 & EF-1 damage. The tornado intensified so quickly that it produced EF-4 damage about 10 minutes later.

Reminder: The National Weather Service in Wakefield will be holding a Basic SKYWARN class tomorrow (Wednesday) at 6PM at the Norfolk EOC. This class is free and if you attend, you will become a trained severe weather spotter. I highly recommend attending if you are interested in meteorology or just like to learn about thunderstorms.
