A storm destroyed three airplanes and damaged two others at Stillwater Regional Airport early Friday morning.  

Stillwater Emergency Management Director Rob Hill says three airplanes owned by the Oklahoma State University Flight Center were damaged.  He estimates damage to the planes was about $1 million. 

News On 6 storm tracker Val Castor got video of the damage on the north side of Stillwater. He says the storm blew part of the roof off one hangar.  

The storm also damaged a home near the airport and knocked out power in the area.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman says winds of up to 70 mph were reported in the area.

There have been no reports of any injuries.
