That mammoth tornado near El Reno, Okla. — the one that outsized the Hallam, Neb. tornado for widest ever — may not retain its EF5 rating.
The National Weather Service continues to review whether the El Reno tornado did indeed hit EF5 status, according to the Tulsa World. The newspaper participated Friday in a briefing held by National Weather Service officials and the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes.
