General Hurricane Season Updates

Hello,

The year 2020 continues to prove to be one of a kind. As Tropical Storm Gonzalo sets a record for becoming the earliest named “G” storm in the Atlantic Ocean, it is evident that South Florida needs to be prepared for this Hurricane Season. 

While our friends at the National Hurricane Center don’t predict Gonzalo will pose a threat to South Florida, we must realize that we have yet to hit the peak of Hurricane Season. For all things preparation, we remind you that we have built a digital Storm Resource Center for your business to leverage.

Visit www.wheelhouseit.com/storm to download your resources today! 

Additionally, we have curated a quick read about being prepared for Hurricane Season during a pandemic. Here we highlight the following to consider in your preparations: 

  • Physical Plant Operations
  • External Assistance
  • Location Challenges
  • Supply Chain Interruptions
  • Communication Channels
  • Insurance Claims Challenges
  • The People Involved

You can read the blog here: https://blog.wheelhouseit.com/planning-for-natural-disasters-should-mesh-with-pandemic-response 

As a reminder, the WheelHouse IT team is here to support you through these unique times. Should you have questions about your preparedness, reply to this email or give us a call. We are happy to assess your current situation. 

Sincerely,

The WheelHouse IT Team

Hello,

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.

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

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.
