Before nightfall many homeowners were out assessing the damage and chopping trees that fell in their yard with the help of firefighters.

Some were home at the time the severe weather moved in.

"The whole street, the gutters were full it was the worst I've seen in a long time," said resident Joseph Bryans. "I saw torrential rain like a mini hurricane and we heard a loud rumble. And then I came around afterwards and I saw these roofs are open, and sheds are down, trees are down, it was scary. Our backyard has about an inch of water in it and I've been here 30 years and I've never seen it like this," he added.
