Impacts of Severe Weather
The Beaufort Wind Force scale was developed in the 1800s as a way to measure wind speed. You don't need any fancy instruments to use it. You just look around, and then compare what you see with the chart. Check it out below and see if you can come up with a rating for what the wind is like today.
