A tornado which tore across farming areas of Eyre Peninsula in South Australia has been filmed on a mobile phone.

Local Billy Branson captured the footage, while another ABC listener Mark, at Cummins, also photographed the tornado on his mobile phone.

Matt Collopy from the Bureau of Meteorology said it was an unusual weather event for South Australia.

"To actually get a report of a tornado itself is very rare," he said.

Senior forecaster Mark Anolak said storms were likely to continue throughout the state into Thursday.

"With the thunderstorms we are expecting generally five to 10 millimetres across eastern parts of the state, probably less than five millimetres over the western parts of the state, but in the far east with the thunderstorms, local heavy falls are possible, getting up to 20, 30 millimetres," he said.

Local resident Darren Kelly said the wild weather came without warning.

"We just see a bit of cloud an lightning kicking around out west, or north-west from here, from Cummins and then it sort of just come in and dumped a fair amount of rain in a short amount of time," he said.
