Moore Tornado Rated EF-2

Brandon Sullivan, AccuWeather
Wednesday's Moore tornado has now been rated EF-2 intensity by the National Weather Service. There were two EF-2's in Oklahoma that day, including the fatal Sand Springs tornado.

The Moore tornado, while small, was quite impressive in the Federal Aviation Administration's Terminal Doppler Weather Radar wind data. AccuWeather Enterprise Solution's meteorologist Rich Putnam, using our unique SmartWarn® analysis and warning software,
was able to issue a tornado warning a full 15 minutes before the tornado touched down -- allowing our clients to take appropriate safety measures. Our report on this storm is here.
