The National Weather Service says the tornado that hit Moore, Okla., was a top-of-the-scale EF-5 twister with winds of at least 200 mph, the Associated Press reports this afternoon.
The weather service says the tornado’s path was 17 miles long and 1.3 miles wide.
What kind of damage area would that be if it were the Twin Cities?
