(ABCNews) -- Town workers are cleaning up debris at the Goldsby Airport in Oklahoma after a morning storm damaged the main hangar.

Goldsby Mayor Cindy Scott said a strong gust of wind or possibly "a circulation" hit the David J. Perry Airport about eight a.m. Tuesday. The storm
tore off a large section of the main hangar's roof. The storm also ripped doors from the building, which has room for airplanes and offices, she said.

About 60 planes are housed at the airport's hangars. One airplane was
severely damaged by the storm when a portion of the hangar's roof collapsed on it.

The storm also knocked out electricity to the site, which disabled runway lights.

In the next few days, town leaders will learn if the hangar can be repaired or
whether it will have to be replaced, she said.
