A tornado that severely damaged two farmsteads Saturday near Tyler, N.D., could be rated an EF4, the National Weather Service said Sunday.


A team from the Weather Service in Grand Forks surveyed the damage Sunday and determined the tornado was at least an EF3 and potentially greater, said meteorologist Greg Gust.

The Weather Service will send a meteorologist from Sioux Falls, S.D., today to give a second opinion, Gust said. Tyler is less than 10 miles south of Wahpeton, N.D.
