The tornado in El Reno OK on May 31st is now ranked as an EF5. The width of tornado was 2.6 miles and the winds were measured at nearly 300 miles per hour. This tornado will go down in the history books as one of the strongest and widest on record! Storm chaser Nick Nolte captured some amazing video of this tornado which I thought should be shared.
