Barneveld was discussed quite a bit on the old thread....on the edge of town it threw cars up to 300 yards & completely leveled and partially swept away a brick church that had a poured concrete foundation, and I think that was the basis for the F5 rating.What's interesting is that there was only two violent tornado in WI since Barneveld84 F5 tornado, one was Oakfield tornado in 1996, the other was F4 tornado on july 5 1994.
Speaking of Barneveld tornado, this aerial photograph does indicate the tornado was intensifying as it passed through town. The bottom part of the picture maybe the Swiss Lane area that rated F5. The tornado was violent enough to obliterate several houses but was not particular high end damage to convice me as an EF5 tornado.
