I have noticed a site (I use that term loosely) referring to the Tornadoes that took place in South Australia and refering to them and their associated damage in the EF Scale or The Enhanced Fujita scale (EF-Scale) rates the intensity of tornadoes in the United States and Canada based on the damage they cause.

For the correct information here in Australia we DO NOT use the EF Scale we still use the Fujita F-scalewhich.
Tornadoes are ranked using the estimates wind speed based on the extent and severity of damage.
