Television footage showed a trail of destruction in Kensal Rise, with numerous trees uprooted and cars damaged by falling debris.
Hundreds of people have been displaced from their homes.
Tornadoes in Britain are almost unheard of. "It was very large and certainly very powerful," said BBC television. "You could see it ripping up heavy chunks of mortar and smashing it into cars."
