Serious damage was caused to the village of Leersum in the centre of the Netherlands on Friday evening by what seems to have been a "downburst".

Half a dozen houses were so badly damaged that they are temporarily uninhabitable, and large numbers of trees were blown down in the village and surrounding area.
