Bomb Cyclone Blows Through Connecticut
Bomb Cyclone certainly sounds formidable and Wednesday night’s storm and certainly was powerful! There was an abundance of power outages and fallen trees! Throughout the state over 40,000 power outages were reported, and more than half a million people affected throughout New England. There were numerous school and business closures! (not ours!) Some roads seen temporary stop signs set up in place of traffic lights while other roads were blocked off entirely. Simply put, things were a mess! There were teams working to remove the trees and to restore power. Our office also responded to several emergencies.
First were the jobs requiring tree removal. Tree removal companies saw their schedules filling up rapidly but thanks to our relationships we were able to coordinate immediate tree removal for multiple property owners. Then, several of our customers suffered from roof damage from fallen trees which required roof tarping, we were happy to help. Lastly, were the jobs involving water. We saw a combination of groundwater and water intrusion caused by the fallen trees. We had a busy couple of days.
Power has been restored, roads re-opened, trees removed, roofs tarped, and water extracted. We are proud to be part of the group of people who respond after bad times.
We hope you don’t, but if you need us, we are here to help.
