Ten people working at a farm in County Londonderry had a lucky escape after what they described as a tornado struck it on Wednesday afternoon.
BBC weather presenter, Cecilia Daly said the last couple of days had brought some unusual types of weather to various parts of Northern Ireland
"We have had torrential rain, thunderstorms, massive hail, and on Wednesday there was a report of a tornado near Eglinton around lunchtime," she said.

Yeah the weather has been going mad here for the last couple of months at least.
It's getting to the point where you can leave the house in the morning, walk out into a howling gale, then have fairly pleasant spells of sunshine during the day, interspersed by heavy rain showers.
Oh yeah, and we're going to have frost for the next couple of nights apparently
I mean, we aren't known for good weather at the best of times, but come on... Frost in June
