The Rome News-Tribune reports Floyd County Emergency Management Agency Director Scotty Hancock says two-thirds of the losses were incurred by six businesses, with none listed as destroyed.
Keith Clark, owner of the West Rome IGA grocery, says he's still assessing damage to his store but says the roof over the shopping center will have to be replaced. He says thousands of dollars worth of food had to be dumped.
Thirty-one other businesses or commercial establishments also sustained losses that are being listed as minor, meaning losses of at least $20,000 were estimated.
