The heavy rain and high winds overnight caused extensive damage throughout the county – including pulling part of the roof off the Barrow County Administration Building.
“A large portion of the roof was ripped off the building by the heavy winds,” said Lt. Scott Dakin of Barrow County Emergency Services. “This of course created some flooding in the building as well.”
The Barrow County Health Department, which is housed in the building, was severely damaged and is closed. Both local and state employees have worked for hours to relocate the department's equipment and supplies.
