Here's a video that I found on YouTube that recounts that day in May in 1999 in Oklahoma:
When I see videos like this, it makes me think about our steep slope roofing.
Although our tiles are lightweight roofing systems, our Bellaforté slate roof have been tested to handle winds up to 175 mph!
According to the Fujita Scale, tornado wind speeds can range:
- F0 or a Gale Tornado - 40-72 mph winds
- F1 or a Moderate Tornado - 73-112 mph
- F2 or a Significant Tornado - 113-157 mph
- F3 or a Severe Tornado - 158-206 mph
If you would like to learn more about our Bellaforté tiles, please reach out to one of our customer service reps who can answer any questions that you might have as well as put you in touch with one of our manufacturer representatives that can show you an actual piece of our tile!
