The National Weather service says the tornado was an EF-1, with maximum wind speeds estimated at 105 miles-per-hour. It was on the ground for about 20 minutes late Tuesday afternoon, finally lifting at 5:54, according to KCRG. The tornado’s maximum width was just 60 yards, or the distance from the goalposts to mid-field on a football field.

Thankfully there were no injuries and after a few days of severe weather and heavy rain, isn’t it nice to have a quiet day. The lower temperatures and humidity don’t hurt, either.
