Tornadoes hit the province of Milan on Monday, destroying warehouses and cars and forcing residents to flee their homes, Italian media reported.

The tornadoes struck the towns of Grezzago and Trezzo d'Adda, just outside Milan, on Monday afternoon.

A video clip (below) shows the full force of the tornadoes as they swept through the area.

The mayor of Trezzo d'Adda, Danilo Villa, said repairs would likely cost €5 million, news site Milan Today reported.

"One woman told me that she was lifted up in her car and hurled ten metres. Thankfully, she only suffered minor injuries," the mayor said.

A dozen people have been displaced by the tornadoes, Milan Today said.
