Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve most certainly have heard about Hurricane Harvey and the devastation it has caused in Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas.
Hurricane Harvey dumped an estimated 27 trillion gallons of water on Texas and Lousiana and is looking to be one of the most damaging natural disasters in U.S history. Tens of thousands have been forced to evacuate their homes and while we won’t know the ultimate toll on life and property for sometime, current estimates are pegging $75 billion dollars worth of damage — even worse, the death toll continues to rise.
The Impact to GreenGeeks
The impacts of Hurricane Harvey hits close to home for GreenGeeks, a rather large portion of our team is located in Texas, particularly in Houston — good news is that our team has been accounted for and is safe. Our decision to diversify our staff across the globe meant that we were able to continue to support our customers during a disaster, albeit, slower than normal.
