Report: Heavy storm damage at Textron plant in Georgia

Textron's Georgia plant sustained heavy storm damage as severe weather rolled through Augusta, Georgia Monday night, according to a report from CBS News 12. 

The building was badly damaged by storms overnight Tuesday. Repair efforts are ongoing throughout the day Wednesday. An official with Textron tells News 12 that some of the 1,200 employees returned to work Wednesday.

While they said the cleanup won't take long, the E-Z-Go plant sustained shattered glass, uprooted trees and roofs torn off buildings. 

“We're still assessing the extent of that damage to determine what kind of impact that is expected to have on our operations,” said Brandon Haddock, the director of communications for Textron Specialized Vehicles.

Officials with Textron say they aren’t sure when workers will come back, but they’re working to make it happen as soon as possible.
