Wagoner Tornado was EF-2 not EF-0

I saw on the news tonight where the tornado that struck Wagoner Saturday night was actually an EF-2! I had no idea! KOTV reported that it was on the ground for 4.4 miles.

The Storm Prediction Center details the Enhanced Fujita Scale 2 (EF-2) has having winds between 113 and 157 mph and describes the possibility of "considerable damage."
