F3: Trees still standing.
F4: The water tower having been taken down is impressive.
F4: Poorly anchored building blown off foundation & blown apart. Would have been F3 but water tower makes it F4.
F3: Poor construction -- but swept away.
F3: Building gone, poor ties, truck in place.
F3/F4: Borderline. Would be F5 but attachment was very suspect. Fire station may have just popped loose intact, & even F4 not consistent with unmoved trucks.
F3: 1/4" bolts without washers would only be F3.
F3/F4: Depends on where car originated! Stripped/debarked tree.
F4: Water tower most likely well anchored; however, fire truck remains. Still, possible F5.
F2: Poor anchoring. Could have been lifted off easily.
F2/F3: But car was moved? Trucks were still there, gloves still there, no washers or nuts.
F3: Fire station walls and roof removed...almost F4...but too much debris remaining on slab.
F3: Fire station & water tower removed. Trucks hardly damaged, though.
F3: Water tower collapsed, possible by fire station. Fire station removed -- trucks in place with littl damage. 1/4" anchor bolts, no washers, not well anchored.
F3: Big building flying.
F3: Water tower? I don't know enough about it.
F5: Displaced auto near water tower suggests sustained transport of very large projectile.
F2: Trucks in place. Some trees behind were stripped but some were not.
F2: Unsupported or weakly supported frame. Not much damage.
F3: Structures not as sound as they could be (no washers etc.). Water tower probably got hit by debris, destroying supports.
F2: Bolts not bent.
F4: Firehouse = large missile, but not well anchored
F3: Water tower is top heavy & leggy & presents a considerable wind load.... Gloves are a curiosity -- left in place.
F3: Toughest rating!
F2: Damage largely resulted from less than adequate foundation anchoring.
F2: The fire trucks weren't moved at all. The fire station, hwoever, was lifted up and thrown into the water tower.
F3: Because it did not move the trucks,
F3: Weird! Structure again not bolted/anchored properly.
F4: Cars thrown, fire station also thrown.
F4: Water tower - incidental.
F0: I don't think it would take too much to make a top heavy water tower fall over (maybe should be F1).
F2: Rural fire stations do not normally meet the description of well-built structures; roll-up doors typically allow winds to easily get inside the building, then roof & walls destroyed once winds inside the building.
F4: Airborne automobile.
F3: Even if the bolts weren't correctly set up, I still think it takes a lot of power to throw a building.
F2: Since the water tower was well secured (it seemed) & full of water it would take a very strong amount of wind or a very heavy object traveling at a great speed (the fire station) to knock it over.
