Is there such thing called an ef5 hurricane?
No. EF5 is a rating used for tornadoes, not hurricanes. Tornadoes in the United States and, as of 2013, Canada are rated on the Enhanced Fujita scale, with ratings from EF0 to EF5. EF5 is the highest and rarest intensity rating.
Hurricanes are rated on a different scale, called the Saffir-Simpson scale, which ranges from category 1 to category 5, with 5 being the highest and rarest rating as well.
It depends. Hurricane ratings are based on measured wind speed, so a hurricane can become a category 5 but stay at sea, causing no damage. Tornado ratings are based on damage severity, so if a tornado is rated EF5, at least one well-built structure must have been completely obliterated. However, a hurricane that makes landfall at category 5 intensity can be expected to be much worse than most EF5 tornadoes.
There is no such thing as an F5 hurricane. F5 is a rating that applies to tornadoes, not hurricanes. An F5 tornado is extremely violent, capable of wiping well built houses clean off their foundations. The category was been replaced by EF5 on a new, more accurate scale and has estimated winds beginning at just over 200 mph. Winds over 300 mph have been recorded. A category 5 hurricane has sustained winds inf excess of…
Ada appears to have experienced some flooding before. Tsunamis are an oceanic phenomenon and thus are impossible in Oklahoma. Similarly, Oklahoma is too far inland to get hurricanes, though it sometimes gets rain from their remnants. There has never been an F5 or EF5 tornado in Ada or in the country where it resides.
The most recent ten F5/EF5 tornadoes are: Moore/Oklahoma City F5 of May 3, 1999 Greensburg, KS EF5 of May 4, 2007 Elie, MB F5 of June 22, 2007 Parkersburg, IA EF5 of May 25, 2008 Philadelphia, MS EF5 of April 27, 2011 Hackleburg, AL EF5 of April 27, 2011 Smithville, MS EF5 of April 27, 2011 Rainsville, AL EF5 of April 27, 2011 Joplin, Missouri EF5 of May 22, 2011 Piedmont/El Reno, OK EF5 of…
I'm sure as you know, EF5 tornadoes are the strongest most dangerous tornadoes on the Earth. EF5 tornadoes can blow away a house in a couple seconds and the damage from an EF5 can be pretty horrifying. The only thing left after a tornado, like that, goes by would just be the foundation so that's is pretty bad. Look up tornadoes on Wikipedia and you will see pictures from what the different tornadoes could do
