Reflections on Hurricane Sandy

Tomorrow marks two years since Hurricane Sandy first formed in the Caribbean before wreaking havoc on the East Coast.

With customers in Manhattan, we saw some of the aftermath firsthand.

We witnessed the damages that would ultimately land Sandy among the ranks of the worst natural disasters of 2012 (the damages amounted to $65 billion).

We heard about the challenges our clients faced: widespread power outages, downed voice circuits and inaccessible office space.

Throughout the affected areas’ recovery efforts, our clients — who, by the way, had comprehensive disaster recovery plans in place — and other companies have shown us that businesses are key to a community’s recovery, whether it’s donating money to relief efforts or selling critical services and providing jobs.
