STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Officials say a storm carrying powerful winds damaged homes and businesses in Stillwater, including several airplanes at the city’s regional airport.

No injuries have been reported from the stormy weather, which hit early Friday. Stillwater Emergency Management Director Rob Hill says three airplanes owned by the Oklahoma State University Flight Center were damaged or destroyed at the Stillwater Regional Airport.

Hill tells The Oklahoman that the value of the airplanes is about $1 million.

The storm also knocked down trees and took out power in many parts of the city. The Storm Prediction Center says winds of up to 70 mph were reported in the area.
