TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Damage from Sunday's monsoon storm at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base ran the gamut.

There were two overturned F-16s that are in being stored at the base Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group, popularly known as the boneyard.

Plus, there were downed power lines and flooding.

For a few hours, parts of the base were without water.

One of the most visible parts of the base, the commissary, even had to be closed for several hours when the power went out.

Early word was that the building might have been hit by lightning.

Whatever, the cause, store employees spent hours trying to save what cold and frozen food they could.

They also threw out out a lot of food.

There was no estimate yet on the value of the lost food.

Store managers expect to have the shelves restocked within a  few days.
