To exclude a title from public view, click the Add Details link to the right of the title to display the pull-down menu, and then click the Keep private checkbox. Private items have a small lock icon next to them.

The Storm Prediction Center of the National Weather Service includes maps, tracks, averages and summaries that apply to tornadic activity in the United States. The Norman office of the National Weather Service keeps a historic list of tornado data by county. The EF Scale became operational on February 1, 2007 and is used to assign a tornado a 'rating' based on estimated wind speeds and related damage.

Earthquakes are measured with the Richter Magnitude Scale developed by Charles F. Richter of California Institute of Technology in 1935. Here is a summary of the Richter scale:
Magnitude less than 3.5: Generally not felt, but recorded.
Magnitude 3.5-5.4: Often felt, but rarely causes damage.
Magnitude under 6.0: At most slight damage to well-designed buildings over small regions.
Magnitude 6.1-6.9: Can be destructive in areas up to 100 kilometers across where people live.
Magnitude 7.0-7.9: Major earthquake. Can cause serious damage over larger areas.
Magnitude 8 or greater: Great earthquake. Can cause serious damage in areas several hundred kilometers across.
Earthquakes are also measured by the Mercalli Intensity Scale which is a longer, more detailed scale. Both the Richter Scale and the Mercalli Scale can be seen on the U.S. Geological Survey website.
