When we were looking at the damage last night, this is exactly what we thought. An EF-1 tornado will have wind speeds from 86 to 110 miles per hour. Recent notable tornadoes in Colorado were Holly in March of 2007 and Windsor in May of 2008. Both of these tornadoes were classified as EF-3 with wind speeds of 136 to 165 mph. We are going through the peak of severe weather season. We all need to make sure we have a severe weather safety plan, in case severe weather strikes our area. We will have more information about the Denver twisters later this week.
