From The Wilmington News Journal:
http://www.delawareonline.com/updates/Tornadoconfirme.html

One C-130 is wingless and two others are jammed together. Must have been one heck of a tornado to do that. At first they said it was a minor tornado spun up by the storm, but... I'm thinking at least F2 for this kind of stuff.

I hope Univ. of Delaware wasn't severely affected.
Up, up and away!

Action News showed an Archer flipped upside down and a hexagonal gatehouse with all its windows blown out
