A trampoline pierced the roof of a Hobart home and a school was badly damaged after wild winds lashed Tasmania's south.

Gusts of more than 100kh/h and fallen trees damaged several homes and cars in the state's capital on Wednesday night.

Moonah resident Jenny Pritchett feared for her family's safety after a neighbour's trampoline was blown onto her house.

The leg of the trampoline came through the ceiling of her son's bedroom.

"He yelled, I got up and flicked the light on and the trampoline had gone through his ceiling," she told AAP.

"I know trampolines can fly in the wind but I've never known one piercing the ceiling like that."

Goulburn Street Primary School has been closed until Monday after the roof of one of its buildings was blown off and onto a nearby road.

Power was cut to thousands of homes in the state's south but the majority were returned to the grid throughout the day.

A wind gust of 111km/h was recorded in Hobart by the Bureau of Meteorology.

The State Emergency Service received almost 40 calls for assistance.

"We're lucky that no one has been injured," SES regional officer Mark Dance told reporters.
