The tornado was filmed by several inhabitants of the Muret and Seysses regions of south-west Toulouse Sunday night.
Yellow in colour, it formed in the sky and came down to the ground in about five minutes, causing some damage to a nearby farm.
The rest of France experienced high winds over the weekend, reaching 150km/h in some regions, causing trees to fall, ripping off roves and cutting off electricity to about 16,000 homes.
