Hi everybody,

I know I just joined here but I've been on the Discord for several weeks now, already met some of you at the Severe Storms Seminar in DuPage this last weekend! I'm a small YouTuber and I've been interested in weather for many, many years. Although I may be a relative novice still, I tried to take a look at what should be the largest tornado ever, but for some reason is not recognized as such. The Mulhall, Oklahoma tornado of May 3rd, 1999.

Would anyone be able to get me more information on this tornado and why the DOW's recorded size of more than four miles wide is not recognized, and thus why El Reno is recognized as the largest tornado on record? I feel like Mulhall is simply forgotten among the stupor of the Bridge Creek-Moore tornado.
