This morning we are resting in the peace that damage in Southeast Texas was much less severe than we expected and planned for. Hurricane Laura officially made landfall in Cameron, LA near 1am as a strong Category 4.
Laura continues to move northward as a Tropical Storm. Heavy rain continues across Louisiana away from immediate coastal areas, and they continue to monitor the potential for flash flooding.
We are pleased to report that our facilities fared well during the storm overall. CBRE has reported very little damage to the exteriors and critical infrastructure equipment. If you are aware of any damage caused by the storm, remember, we need to document any damages with pictures prior to being repaired. Please email any photos with the location and date of the photo to Diana Miles (firstname.lastname@example.org).
