Effects vary depending on the type of building, quality of construction, and the strength of the tornado. Effects can range from superficial damage such as peeled roof tiles and torn awnings to the complete destruction of the building. In extreme cases, smaller buildings may be completely blown away. Intermediate damage levels can also occur, such as the loss of the roof or the collapse of exterior walls.
