CLINTON, Okla. (KFOR) – An Oklahoma community is working to clean up the damage left behind by a strong tornado on Tuesday night.

On Tuesday, stormtrackers were able to spot a tornado near the town of Clinton.

As it moved through town, it caused significant damage at the Clinton Regional Airport.

Initial reports indicate that multiple hangars suffered damage from the storm. One hangar actually collapsed and landed one two plans and several cars.

City officials told KFOR 28 out of 29 hangars are now damaged or destroyed.

One hangar even collapsed and landed on top of two airplanes and a few cars.

“Just this site alone is almost $7 million of damages…counting the building and the equipment that’s inside,” said Mike Galloway with Emergency Management.

Fortunately, no injuries were reported in connection with the storms.
