Dade Moeller Fares Well Through Hurricane Isaac

Sept. 4, 2012


Our Gulf of Mexico-based staff experienced lots of wind and rain last week from Hurricane Isaac, but, fortunately, all of our staff and their families are safe and sound, and nobody suffered any major personal property damage. The storm caused a few downed limbs at our facility in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but there was no significant damage. The facility experienced no flooding or loss of electrical power, and we are now back to work with full staffing and full functionality. We commend the teamwork and responsible, timely actions taken by our entire staff and our partners in the Gulf to develop and execute such a proactive, comprehensive Hurricane Preparation Plan.
