Be Prepared For A Hurricane

Employee Emeritus Employee Emeritus ‎08-28-2012 08:46 AM

Did you know August 24 marked the 20th anniversary of the day Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida? The storm devastated and transformed the region, and at the time, it was the costliest hurricane in U.S. history. (It now ranks behind Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Ike in 2008.)


As hurricane season gets under way again this year, we here at Verizon have begun to ready our network and physical assets in preparation for the possibility that Tropical Storm Isaac will cause extensive damage.
