BARNAWARTHA has been hit by a fierce storm that downed trees, tore off roofs and left a trail of debris scattered around the area.
Strong winds and heavy rain hit the region about 7pm last night, with properties along the Murray Valley Highway appearing to be the worst hit.
The SES received eight calls for assistance from residents, including some that lost the roofs on their houses.
Rob Whyte, from Gooramadda Olives, said the winds were so fierce he took shelter in his home last night.
"The rain was sideways, to the point that it was a total white-out," he said.
"And the wind was phenomenal. I won't go as far as saying it was roaring like a freight train coming through, but it was enough to make me close up the windows and retreat to the centre of the house to avoid any breaking windows."
Mr Whyte inspected his property this morning and found his 800 olive trees were okay, but his shop has a leaking roof and his neighbour's roof had been hit.
