Shreveport and Bossier City felt the itorm first before it tracked Interstate 20 across Louisiana's northernmost tier of parishes. Winds were reported at 90 mph at the Downtown Airport, damaging more than 13 aircraft. "Some were turned over. A hangar blew down on one," said airport policeman Doyle Walker. Two hangars were destroyed by the severe wind.

Three aircraft sustained minor damage at Barksdale Air Force Base two B-52 bombers and a KC-1 35 tanker, said Senior Master Sgt. George Prince, a public affairs spokesman. "A number of buildings had minor damage, like windows blown out. Several trees were blown down in the housing area and golf course. Some cars had denting from hail windows cracked," Prince said.

POWELL, From Pg. 1 "I'm not conceding," he said. "It's not going to be certified until Thursday. We're going to wait until the vote's official. When the machines are opened Thursday, we will be at every parish.

During the campaign, Sittig accused Powell of voting for rate hikes virtually every time he had a chance. "He has voted 545 limes out of 550 for rate increases," Sittig said. "I don't think he can say he's voting to protect the working man His record clearly shows he has voted for the big utilities and against the working man." Powell countered that in the House, Sittig voted for sales taxes and against the homestead exemption. "If he's going to protect the consumer, he didn't protect it too good in the Legislature," Powell said.

The twister, accompanying a storm that quickly swept into Mississippi, could be considered one of the worst tornado 10 hit the town since the 1930s.

At least 75 homes sustained moderate to severe damage, Dring said.
