The Joplin, Mo., tornado in May 2011 that killed 161 people and injured more than 1,000 was an EF-5, with winds estimated at more than 200 miles per hour.
According to the local authorities, outdoor sirens can not always be heard, and residents should pay attention to radio, television, the National Weather Service website and weather radio for watches and warnings. The service determined the tornado touched down southwest of Hickman just north of Potter Road.
The tornado destroyed a 1930s era home that was being used as a storage building and a barn, while it caused damage to three homes. The main threats are damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes. The tornado was six-tenths of a mile wide and traveled 50.4 miles, the longest track of a tornado in the weather service's Paducah, Ky., coverage area in 25 years.
