Put your arm out a car window doing 80 MPH. Now double that. Scary.

I thank God every day that he gave me the free will to choose between good and evil and if you can find something wrong with a person keeping someone “ in their thoughts and prayers”, you are in need of some deep soul searching. I will also keep those affected in my thoughts and prayers.

I don't wish to scare you even more, but the force is calculated using the square of the speed, so a 160 mph wind has FOUR times the force of an 80 mph wind.

And where did the measure this speed? From the aircraft? In the eye wall 20 to 30 thousand feet up? I wouldn’t thing at ground level the wind that strong? If so there might be nothing left but sand and even that might get blown away?

Let's hope so.

I just can't stop thinking about what it would be like, being stuck in a high EF-3/low EF-4 tornado...

Bad enough being in one for just a few hours, when you know it will be passing soon, but stationary...
