Default F3 tornado in Sask.

The tornado that ripped through a Saskatchewan First Nation on Friday was a powerful one, chewing a path half a kilometre wide and at least 45 kilometres long, Environment Canada says.

The tornado was initially rated as an F2 on the Fujita tornado damage scale, which has a maximum rating of F5.

Now it's been confirmed that for part of the time, it was an F3 tornado, which means winds speeds reached between 253 and 331 kilometres per hour.
