The wind speed calculated by meteorologists means the storm is officially designated as an Enhanced Fujita 1 (EF-1) – the scale runs from zero to five.
Two meteorologists examined the tornado’s destruction over a pathway of about 15 kilometres and found the storm touched down near Jemseg and started ripping up trees.
As it moved east, three barns were destroyed and three more structures were damaged or destroyed including another barn in the Cambridge-Narrows area.
The researchers found the debris from the barn in Cambridge-Narrows was picked up and carried more 300 metres.
The last EF-1 tornado hit the province on Aug. 3, 2007, in the Mount Carleton area.
