The Enhanced Fujita Scale went into effect in February 2007. The National Weather Service will now rate tornado damage according to the new guidelines. For more information on the EF-Scale...Click Here. For simplicity, the F-Scale will remain the main descriptor in this database and it will be implied that the ratings are based on the EF-Scale starting February 2007. 

This database is still in the process of being upgraded.  If you have any suggestions, please email or contact Mark Linhares. Data contained herein is a compliation from various sources that include The Storm Prediction Center (SPC), The National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), Significant Tornadoes by Thomas P Grazulis, Tornadoes in Alabama by Welby Stevens Monthly Weather Review October 1925, and The Birmingham National Weather Service Staff Surveys. Other sources are listed with the specific event.
