Two major storms menace the East Coast
September 5, 2008
Tropical Storm Hanna and Hurricane Ike are set to strike the US East Coast
in close succession over the next few days. While we in the Upper Midwest are (fortunately) well-insulated from the effects of tropical storm systems, we have tremendous sympathy for those who are affected by these storms, particularly as eastern Iowa continues to recover from this year's catastrophic flooding. We stand ready to help those in need with flood-cleanup pumps
and remind engineers and planners that it's always wise to consider specifying lift stations with engine backups
for any location where power outages due to major storms may be possible.
