Baughman Tile Company, 8516 Highway 137, is also dealing with extensive flooding. Bohn told NewsChannel 15 some of the company’s inventory floated away into a field north of the property.

Bohn said portions of the county received six to eight inches of rain over a 24 hour period.

The weather has created problems in Paulding County the last several months. In May, straight-line winds damaged buildings and knocked out power to thousands of people. Flash flooding also created issues for home in businesses in late May, prompting a state of emergency by county officials.
