Storm damage to helicopters and buildings at the Army's Ft. Hood outside Killeen, Tex., will cost at least $600 million to repair, the service said Friday. The Army said it had so far pegged last week's storm damage to almost 200 helicopters at $585 million. Damage to buildings and other facilities was put at $15 million. Lt. Col. John Chapla, an Army spokesman, said exact repair figures are not available. The storm, packing heavy rain and winds of 95 m.p.h., ravaged the area May 13. Although no one was killed, the storm forced 25 military families from their quarters and damaged the helicopters and at least 20% of the fort's buildings.
