A warehouse and distribution center leased by Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. in Albany, Ga. was damaged Jan. 22 when tornadoes ripped through the region.

The company says the space is not operational.

The facility is operated by a third-party logistics company for Cooper, and the tire company says immediately after the storm it activated contingency plans to reroute customer orders through other facilities in its network.

The building's owner and Cooper were able to assess the facility and secure the site on Jan. 26, and Cooper says the process of assessing the damage is ongoing.

Cooper says there were no injuries at its facility. The storms killed 16 people in Georgia. Albany, which is about 180 miles south of Atlanta, was among the hardest hit areas, according to local news and emergency management reports.
