Hurricane Maria: Puerto Rico Staff, Office safe and Sound; Company Services Uninterrupted
We’re thrilled to report that Embodee team members who took shelter from Hurricane Maria at our corporate headquarters in San Juan, Puerto Rico, are safe and that our solidly built office suffered no damage.
Thanks to extensive preparations and business continuity plans, all of our key services continued to operate without interruption or downtime.
Staffers endured a harrowing day as the strongest storm to hit Puerto Rico since 1928 howled for over 12 hours outside, rattled shutters violently, and swept the island with flooding rains.
Interruption of utilities made life uncomfortable and requires some repairs and backup plans, but we’re reminded of what our director of business operations, Wilitza Vazquez, likes to say: #embodeestrong.
Our hearts go out to those less fortunate and we look forward to contributing to local cleanup and aid efforts in the weeks to come.
