On March 2, a devastating tornado outbreak took place in the interior United States, stretching from Ohio down into Louisiana. The media reflected it as a smaller repeat of the grandiose 2011 Super Outbreak. Surveys are still on-going, but there are already 9 EF2+ tornadoes reported. As the preliminaries roll in I give my guesstimates to the damage of these tornadic systems.

Figure One: The remains of Henryville High School's gym. This appears to be of a high-end EF2 or moderate EF3.

Figure Two: Destruction in Maryville, Indiana, from above. This appears to be a strong EF4.

Figure Three: A church demolished by the West Liberty tornado. Probably a strong EF4.
