Boeing, Spirit AeroSystems facilities in Oklahoma not damaged by tornado

Employees at Boeing’s Oklahoma City offices took shelter during the time a massive tornado hit Moore, Okla., about a 20 minute drive away.

Everyone was safe, said Boeing’s Oklahoma City spokeswoman Jennifer Hogan.

The offices have not been damaged.

There’s no word yet on whether any Boeing employees’ homesĀ  have been hit, however.

About 100 employees live in the Moore area. It’s not known how many of them are transfers from Boeing’s Wichita facility, said Boeing spokeswoman Michelle Nalley.

Spirit AeroSystems’ plants in McAlester and Tulsa, Okla., have not been hit, said Spirit spokesman Ken Evans.

“Our thoughts are with those who are working and those who have homes in that area,” Evans said.

He doesn’t know whether any employees’ homes were damaged, he said.

“We’re wanting to make sure everybody is going to be safe,” Evans said. “Safety is our No. 1 priority.”
