Covariant equations characterizing the strength of a singularity in spherical symmetry are derived and several models are investigated. The difference between central and non-central singularities is emphasized. A slight modification to the definition of singularity strength is suggested. The gravitational weakness of shell crossing singularities in collapsing spherical dust is proven for timelike geodesics, closing a gap in the proof.
