Residents in Thirsk have witnessed a "tornado" - less than two weeks after the town was hit by flash floods.
The tornado caused no structural damage as it did not touch down
The twister rumbled through the North Yorkshire market town during a heavy thunderstorm on Thursday afternoon.
Meterologists at RAF Leeming who monitored the phenomenon said it was technically a funnel cloud because it did not make contact with the ground.
Torrential rain associated with the storm flooded nearby Easingwold School, which has been closed for repairs.
Head teacher Carey Chidwick said he did not expect the school to open until Tuesday at the earliest after part of a roof caved in under the weight of water and carpets were waterlogged.
