FULTON COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Several planes have been severely damaged at the airport in Salem.

There is also structural damage to some airport buildings.

There is wind damage in other areas of Fulton County also.

Fulton County Dispatch said the steeple was blown off of Salem First Baptist. 

Structures and signs near Salem High School were damaged as well. Those included a football scoreboard and a concession stand.

However, Salem Superintendent Ken Rich tells Region 8 News school is in session Tuesday.

Graduation planned for Tuesday night will not be impacted.

Rich says the school itself was not damaged, only some of the athletic fields.
