A huge tornado ripped across southwest Luxembourg on Friday leaving fourteen people injured with one in critical condition.

The tornado in the southwestern Luxembourg communities of Pettingen and Kaerjeng left a path of destruction that made up to 100 homes uninhabitable, local media reported on Saturday.

In footage on social media, the storm can be seen twisting behind buildings, while images of the aftermath show fallen trees, damaged cars and debris strewn across the streets. "Meanwhile, we will coordinate to cover the roofs", Mr Paul Schroeder, director-general of Luxembourg's fire and rescue service, told residents, according to Luxembourg French-language newspaper L'Essentiel.

As the tornado entered France late Friday it damaged homes in the Meurthe-et-Moselle region, but there were no reports of injuries, according to local authorities.
