PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- All hangars have been damaged at Prairie du Chien Municipal Airport due to Wednesday nights storms.

Airport manager Richard Yeoman said no planes were flipped over in the storms, however a few do have damage.

The airport tells TV9 two hangars are destroyed and more than two others have damage with their doors.

Tom Schaumburg, whose hangars roof was blown apart said he is going to tear it down and not rebuild. Luckily for Schaumburg, his airplane is in Florida and was not harmed due to the storms.

The airport says there are no delays or cancellations today because of the storms.

Yeoman said Governor Scott Walker will be in town tomorrow to look at the damage.
