In A Disaster, Remember To Listen To Your Body

If you ever find yourself in a disaster recovery situation, keep in mind to “listen to your body”. Whether you ride out a storm or evacuate and come back later, guess what? The mess will be there.

500k Without Power

While most eyes in the nation are focused on the terror attack in New York, A freak wind storm took down hundreds of trees in Maine leaving almost 474,000 people without power. Central Maine Power reported that almost 60% of it’s customers were without power and it had employed over three hundred two man crews but said it will still be days before power is fully restored.
