Learn how devastating and catastrophic EF 5 tornadoes severely impacted Joplin Missouri and Moore, Oklahoma. And how can you prepare for such a destructive tornado.

EF 5 Tornadoes are the strongest storms on earth with winds more than 200 mph and in 1999 one tornado produced a record wind speed of 314 miles per hour as it was devastating Moore, Oklahoma. To survive a tornado, you need to have a sturdy room in the lowest level of a secure home on a foundation. It is not recommended to try and out run a tornado, but the most devastating twisters can be life threatening if you are not in a secure shelter. The last EF 5 tornado recorded in the U.S. hit Moore, Oklahoma in May, 2013.
