A tornado in New South Wales town of Dubbo has damaged at least seven houses, scattered debris and uprooted trees.

Roads were flooded across Sydney and the Illawarra, with the emergency services rescuing people stranded in cars after driving into floodwaters, Sydney Morning Herald reported.

"It cut a path about 200 metres wide with another 100 metres either side showing debris," Dubbo State Emergency Services regional controller David Monk said.
