Local Stewart Drysdale starts the clean up after the storm ripped through the trees on his property.

A strong storm passed through Kyabram on Tuesday evening with enough force to uproot tress, take down power lines and ruin fences.

After a day of non-stop rain the storm blackened the sky and swept through town at around 4.30pm.

Residents are yet unable to classify what they saw, with some areas hit worse than others.

On Bolitho Rd Stewart Drysdale’s property suffered extensive damage to trees along his driveway while neighbouring properties remained relatively untouched.

Winds were recorded at being over 85km per hour in some areas.
