    Several buildings at Wright-Patterson Force , including a restoration hangar belonging to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, were damaged in a “suspected” tornado on Wednesday, officials said.

    The museum's Restoration Hangar 4 and several other buildings in the base's southwestern Area B sustained damage when the tornado touched down amid what base officials characterized as several severe early morning storms, the 88th Air Base Wing said in a statement.

    “Our initial assessment from this morning's storm is the damage is isolated to the southern side of Area B,” Col. Travis Pond, the 88th Air Base Wing and installation commander, said in a statement. “Our initial focus right now is on safety and damage assessment.”
