Portable Generators During Natural Disaster Recovery

Following a large natural disaster, like Hurricane Laura, speed is of the absolute essence to restore basic services and prevent additional damage to structures and facilities.  These storms can damage roofs, tear open exterior walls, push debris (such as tree limbs) into buildings, create flooding or storm surge, disrupt local utilities, and/or destroy external structures.  In wind and water events, the structural integrity of buildings is often comprised, opening the opportunity for additional water to cause further damage.  The longer that the structure remains open to the elements, the worse the damage becomes.
