The clean up is continuing this morning after a reported mini tornado struck in Rugby yesterday evening (Wednesday)
The strong winds blew down roof tiles and trees in Bilton and Overslade causing significant damage to several houses.
Some homes also lost their telephone connection and Borough Council workmen were out until after dark repairing homes of the elderly.
The Lawford Road, Glebe Crescent and Wentworth Road were among the worst hit when the twister struck just before 6pm with police reporting a surge in calls.
Rugby FM listener Colin Reed described the scene: "I live in Glebe Crescent and it's a mess! I have no fence and tiles gone off my roof. Pics on my wall."
Steve Summers, who lives in the area that was worst affected added "I had just driven out of my drive. A matter of a few seconds later and the tree outside my house ended up in the drive".
Jennie Sargent described the moment that the twister hit: "I just heard this thundering roar getting louder and louder then all hell broke loose for about 15 seconds, watching loads of debris spiralling in the air"
