This roof was torn off a house as another suspected mini-tornado hit Birmingham during a night of storms which brought chaos to the region.
The occupants of the property in Dovey Road in Moseley - near where another twister devastated homes under three months ago - were believed to be staying with relatives last night.
From about 4pm yesterday, torrential rain caused flooding across the West Midlands and brought rush hour traffic to a standstill on all major roads. Weather experts said almost an inch of rain fell within an hour in Edgbaston.
Drivers reported two-hour journeys from central Birmingham to Harborne, a drive which normally takes under 30 minutes.
West Midlands Fire Service said crews were dealing with incidents across the region and were having to prioritise call-outs to stranded people and flood waters reaching electrical cables.
Station officer Steve Vincent said: "It's not like the tornado in July when we could say localised areas that were particularly badly affected.
"These weather conditions are having a bad effect all across the region.
"I don't know for sure how deep the waters have got to but I can say it was up to the top of my car wheels as I drove in to work."
At about 8.30pm, crews were attending 17 flooding incidents across the conurbation.
Last night the Environment Agency reported the River Rea, which runs through Birmingham, was rising rapidly and in danger of flooding.
Roads were closed in Sutton Coldfield and Harborne and flooding affected many more in Erdington, Stirchley, Small Heath and Edgbaston.
