Owners of the damaged hangers say repairs and rebuilding will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. At least one hangar is a total loss.

Hangar Owner: “I'm sure this one we'll just tear down and start over, because it all twisted and you know, nothing left of it really.”

The airport is about 2-miles north of Oakes.
