Igor Strikes Canada

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Hurricane Igor continues its way up the Atlantic coast, bringing 200 mph winds to the province of Newfoundland, Canada. Igor’s heavy rains have flooded towns, submerged roads and stranded residents in their homes. This is not Newfoundland’s first experience with a major hurricane; a good part of Newfoundland was evacuated when Hurricane Juan struck. We typically associate hurricane-inflicted damage with the Gulf Coast states. This is yet another reminder that we need our businesses to be resilient to a wider range of disasters than those that are “typical” for our geographic region.
