    A witness said she feared for her life and that of her two young daughters who were screaming inside the suburban house, thinking it was going to fly away like in the American musical fantasy film 'The Wizard of Oz.

    At least 20 houses were damaged and 10 cars destroyed in Surrey County, in the southeast of the United Kingdom, on Saturday by a tornado hitting the area, local media reported.

    The terrifying tornado, which lasted for less than a minute, caused destruction to roofs, gardens, trees and cars, taking “everything in its path”.

    “It was really frightening, like nothing I've ever seen in my life - like we weren't in the UK. My girls were screaming. If they were outside it would definitely have taken them away. It was fierce. At one point I thought it was going to take the house. It was literally taking everything in its path,” said Pip Rickerby, 39, who witnessed the incident, cited by The Sun.

    Another woman, Tracy Bramley, who was inside her car during the tornado, said that she a hole was punched in the roof of her auto.

    "I was sat in my car at the time, it all changed really quickly, it started to whip up, I could feel my car beginning to rock a bit, it just came a bit out of nowhere really,” said Tracy Bramley, cited by The Sun.
