Ok, I would like to share my opinion on this tornado being an F5.  It was the widest tornado ever recorded at 2.6 miles wide and it had the second strongest wind speeds ever recorded at 295 MPH.  It was one of the crazyest muti-vortex tornado ever recorded.  Here is what it said in the wikipiedia article on F5 tornadoes:


– Largest tornado on record at 2.6 miles (4.2 km) wide. Was initially rated EF5 based solely on mobile Doppler radar measurements, which recorded winds up to 295 mph (470 km/h). However, the most significant structural damage was rated EF3, as the tornado did not strike any buildings when the EF5 winds were recorded. Rating was eventually downgraded to EF3 because of this, though the practicality of the downgrade has been disputed by some meteorologists.


It also does not show the exact path.  Here is a path map that is more acurate:



I know you get all your info from the National wheather service.  I am just trying to help.

This tornado killed storm chasers Tim Samaras, his son Paul, and their partner Carl Young. May they rest in peace
