WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Preliminary estimates peg the damage from last week’s powerful storm at $300,000 for Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1y9hQ8j ) reports that strategic communications director Ken Evans says the estimate doesn’t include damage at the city’s airports. Winds reached speeds of nearly 90 mph in last week’s storm, leavings thousands of residents in south central Kansas without power

Jabara in northeast Wichita sustained substantial damage, including the total collapse of a main hangar. Evans says runway lights are still not operating, limiting flights to daylight hours only.
