Disclaimer: This blog is in no way meant to diminish the concern everyone at BatteryDAQ has for every living creature in the paths of these natural disasters. We would also like to note that there exist many other ways to disrupt the power grid, both naturally and man-initiated. It is our hope and deepest desire that the effective protections against these type of events continues to improve.
If Shakespeare had penned “A hurricane by any other name is still a hurricane.”, he would have been wrong. They may all meet certain criteria that place them in the category, but the devastation they leave behind can differ, depending on their particular destructive force.
After 12 years without a major hurricane landing on the U.S. mainland, 2 significant storms have severely damaged Houston and nearly the entire state of Florida in recent weeks. However, when we examine the impact they had on cell tower outages, they tell very different stories.
