A small tornado hit Kensal Rise, a residential area in northwest London, shortly after 11:00 GMT, injuring six people and damaging homes and vehicles.
The tornado tore roofs off several houses and demolished sections of walls to send tiles, bricks and furniture flying through the streets.
Television footage showed a trail of destruction with trees uprooted and cars damaged by falling debris.
Tornadoes, thankfully, are very rare in Britain.
