Real-Time Storm Response Updates

As of 5:00 PM EST on July 9th, the National Hurricane Center issued Tropical Storm Warnings for parts of the east coast, including portions of New York and Long Island. With that said, we are closely monitoring the storm and its potential impacts on our clients in the northeast area.

At WheelHouse IT, our priority is to ensure you can continue to focus on your business while we focus on your technology. In the event, Tropical Storm Fay does have a negative impact on the northeast; we want to remind you that our team is prepared to support you. As always, our Network Operations Team will continue to monitor your systems.

Please keep an eye out for additional communication from our team. We will continue to communicate with you regarding any updates we have and the steps we are taking to protect your business.

As a reminder, you are encouraged to visit our Storm Resource Center https://www.wheelhouseit.com/storm

We encourage you to visit https://www.wheelhouseit.com/poc-update/ to help us better understand who within your organization you would like us to communicate with.

As we continue to prepare for Hurricane Season we also invite you to check out our new Storm Resource Center containing complimentary resources to help your business prepare. Along with real-time updates from WheelHouse IT and a Post Storm Survey to communicate with your support team on the status of your business once a storm has passed.

Thank you,

On Tuesday, June 16th, WheelHouse IT spent some quality time with our friends and partners at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. We discussed what the 2020 Hurricane Season is predicted to look like, changes in the National Hurricane Center’s forecasting abilities and more. Additionally, our team wrapped up by reviewing what you can do to protect your business to be not only Storm Ready but to be ready for any disaster that might strike. We invite you to watch the webinar here.

WheelHouse IT has broadened its position on being an authority in the IT space. On Monday, June 15, 2020 WheelHouse IT received confirmation from FEMA that they have received accreditation for being prepared for a disaster via the Ready Business Program. View the Press Release Here

Hello,

It’s not breaking news that June 1st kicked off the official start to hurricane season, and while we don’t know what to expect, we’ll be talking to the experts at the National Hurricane Center for pointers. We are inviting all of our South Florida friends to drop in on this discussion as we go over hurricane preparedness and how to continue working in the event bad weather comes our way.
At this time we would also like to remind you to be on the lookout for “bad actors” targeting potential disaster victims and charitable donors following a hurricane. These generally come by way of fraudulent emails – often containing malicious links or attachments are common after major natural disasters. Please remember to exercise caution when handling emails with hurricane related subject lines, attachments, or hyperlinks. In addition, be cautious of social media pleas, texts, or door-to-door solicitations relating to severe weather events.

We wish you a safe hurricane season and invite you to visit our 2020 Storm Resource center by visiting: https://www.wheelhouseit.com/storm/  (Not comfortable clicking the link? Simply copy and paste into your browser.)

Finally, we invite you to join us Tuesday, June 16th at 1:00 PM EST as we talk to the National Hurricane Center about the 2020 Hurricane Season. Simply register at the following link: https://get.wheelhouseit.com/hurricane-discussion

Sincerely,

The WheelHouse IT Team

Although we have adopted to working from home, it is still important to ensure that your business is prepared for Hurricane Season. Statistically, those that don’t may never fully recover from a disaster. At WheelHouse IT, we understand what it means to be storm ready!  With the 2020 Hurricane Season officially here, our team has once again, reviewed and refined our hurricane plans.

The 2020 hurricane season begins on June 1st. Have you developed a hurricane preparedness plan to protect your business and staff in the event of an impending storm? 

Hurricane season lasts approximately six months each year with the official start date of June 1st through November 30th. For 2020, weather experts anticipate an active hurricane season with the likelihood of 14-18 named tropical storms. Seven to nine of those storms are forecast to strengthen into hurricanes with two to three storms developing into major hurricanes(category 3 or above) capable of catastrophic damage. This 2020 season is considered an above-normal season for tropical disturbances.
