I am going to edit this over a long period of time, so I will be busy working on this.

The Bridge Creek-Moore, Oklahoma F5 of May 3, 1999.

Among the most violent known meteorological events are tornadoes. Each year, more than 2,000 tornadoes occur worldwide, with the vast majority occurring in the United States and Europe. In order to assess the intensity of these events, meteorologist Ted Fujita devised a method to estimate maximum winds within the storm based on damage caused; this became known as the Fujita scale. At the top end of the scale, which ranks from 0 to 5, are F5 tornadoes. These storms were estimated to have had winds between 260 mph (420 km/h) and 318 mph (512 km/h). Following two particularly devastating tornadoes in 1997 and 1999, engineers questioned the reliability of the scale. Ultimately, a new scale was devised that took into account 28 different damage indicators; this became known as the Enhanced Fujita scale. With building designs taken more into account, winds in an EF5 tornado were estimated to be in excess of 200 mph (320 km/h).

Tornadoes in the United States have been rated up to an F5 since 1750, when records were beginning to be kept. Before the Fujita scale was implemented in 1971, experts rated tornado on a scale of 0 to 5, with each scale representing the present day scale F0 to F5 or EF0 to EF5.

F5 damage in Guin, Alabama from the April 3, 1974 tornado.

In the United States, between 1750 and January 31, 2007 there was 608 tornadoes with an F5 rating. In the 19th century, there were 477 tornadoes that were rated F5, with 9 additional tornadoes being rated F4, although the rating is disputed and many believe that the actual intensity of the tornadoes being an F5. Between 1750 and 2007, there was an average of 2.4 F5-rated tornadoes every year.

In the United States, between February 1, 2007 and present day, there were 0 tornadoes with an F5 rating, and since February 1, 2007 there has been 0 tornadoes with an EF5 rating.

Additionally, the works of tornado expert Thomas P. Grazulis revealed the existence of several dozen more between 1800 and 1995. Grazulis also put into question the ratings of several currently rated F5 tornadoes. Outside the United States and Canada, 14 tornadoes have been rated F5 or EF5, with an additional tornado being potentially an F5: Several other tornadoes are also documented as possibly attaining this status.

Attention to users many events on the list happened in real life, but a vast majority are hypothetical.

October 17 1091 London, England 12,822 This is the earliest tornado reported in Britain, and it was estimated to have had wind speeds up to 240 mph (390 km/h). This means it's equal to a T8 on the TORRO scale and an F5 on the Fujita scale. The wooden London Bridge was demolished, and the church of St. Mary-le-Bow in the city of London was badly damaged. For all the damage inflicted, the tornado claimed 12,822 victims from a population of about 180,000.
