CAMILLA, Ga. (WTXL) - As many cities and counties are without power, lights, and food, some businesses have concerns about possible looters.
The Meal Food Mart and the Wash Box Coin Laundry in Camilla, Georgia were both damaged in the storm and officials say people have already looted.
Meal Food Mart Owner, Mike Patel, says he's removed some of his items from his store and donated others to the community. The Wash Box says they're taking steps to prevent looters as well.
"The owners came by and got all of the coin boxes and that kind of helps discourage the vandalism. And then we're getting the equipment out so there won't be any vandalism," said Jimmy Rogers, employee at The Wash Box.
Both businesses agree if you have a business that has been damaged, it's best to board your property to help prevent thefts.
