Windstorm and Tornado Damage Assessment

Published: 6 June 2019

Windstorm and tornado intensity classification is usually done by assessing the inflicted damage, since reliable in-situ measurements are typically lacking. This presentation gives a practical introduction into windstorm and tornado damage assessment using the Fujita-(F)-Scale and the Damage Indicator (DI)-Degree of Damage (DoD) method. Recent site surveys, carried out by ZAMG in Austria, are presented and current developments towards an International Fujita-(IF)-Scale are briefly discussed.
