what is the definition of a strong tornado?
- 🌪Lv 63 weeks ago
There really isn't an official definition of a strong tornado. However, it is widely accepted that the EF2 to EF3 range is considered strong. EF0 to EF1 is weak and EF4 - EF5 is considered violentSource(s): https://www.spc.noaa.gov/faq/tornado/

Qualitative modifiers applied with the obsolete Fujita scale ... such as weak ... strong ... severe ... devastating ... and incredible are no longer used; therefore ... there is no definition of what constitutes a strong tornado.Source(s): Meteorologist.

Tornadoes are measured based on E-Scales, that range from EF0 to EF5.
A strong tornado is anything from a E3 and up.

they're generally rated on the "fujita scale", as F1, F2, F3... up to F6. higher numbers are stronger. they define these F levels here
