This shows the tornado at around 8:15 PM CDT with John Monteverdi video taping it. Since the tornado caused no damage to structures and never passed into an urban area, it was given the lowest F-scale rating of F0. However, the debris field from 10 km away was so obvious and the rotation even more so, the opinion of the experienced chasers present (besides me and Thom Trimble, also Mike Foster) that this tornado, if in an urban area, would have caused at least F2-F3 damage.
