Dealing With The Aftermath Of Hurricane Harvey
Since most of our clients are located in Texas, you are probably aware of the devastating floods occurring throughout east Texas first hand.
We are happy to report that our team is all accounted for and water did not reach our homes or offices, but our neighbors in the communities around us were not as lucky. Homes and building less than two blocks away from us were filled with over 6 feet of water during the torrential downpour brought by Hurricane Harvey.
Power, Internet connections, and phone services have already been restored for us, so we’ll be back to 100% business capacity very soon. Fortunately, our web servers are not physically located in the Houston area, so there was never a threat of losing the sites that we host.
I am amazed to see the incredible amount of volunteer support coming to the aid of our community. People are literally lining up on the roads to bring in food, drinking water, fuel, boats and other items needed to help support the rescue efforts. The local churches have all kicked into high gear organizing volunteer teams and collecting donations to help the community recover. When horrible situations like this occur, our true American spirit shines through. This is real America – Not the divided, polarized groups frequently shown on the news.
We’ve started helping in our own communities as much as we can. Amanda has helped people get water rescues, organized donation drop offs and is now doing laundry local families who still have their homes under water. Her incredible spirit has truly inspired everyone around her.
