The satellite shots of the Barnsdall track are impressive and IMO indicative of a high tornado. Don't usually see clear scouring paths/scars from anything less than a high end EF3.

Okay barnsdall might be the strongest plains tornado in the 2020’s now…more so than matador even. Like actually insane specially since it wasn’t a slow chugger like matador. It was relatively fast

Well, for everyone (including myself) wondering about that home south of Barnsdall, it was surveyed and I found a picture of it on NWS Tulsa's summary of the event.

Looks like the main basis for the rating came down to a single home along with tree damage. My guess is it was either that home or the (also poorly constructed) two story home that was leveled in town.
