NEW PLYMOUTH

Two houses on the outskirts of New Plymouth have been damaged by a tornado.

Emergency services were called to a Carrington Street address around 8:30 tonight to find tiles had been lifted off roofs and a wooden entrance way had been ripped away from another house.

Heavy rain and thunderstorm activity hampered the city tonight, but should clear by tomorrow afternoon. 

There were no reports of any injuries.
