Towne said several buses and support vehicles were damaged. The district is evaluating roofs of buildings for any damage, he said.

The Deer Creek School District has damage to roofs, skylights and windows, as well as rooftop air conditioning units and district vehicles, said district spokeswoman Lenis DeRieux. The district didn't have cost estimates as of Thursday, DeRieux said.

Most of the damage occurred at the district's main campus near NW 206 and N MacArthur Blvd.

University of Oklahoma spokeswoman Catherine Bishop said the Norman campus and the OU Health Sciences Center have minor damage associated with high winds and heavy rain. Privately-owned hangars at OU's Max Westheimer Airport in Norman sustained damage, she said.
