Where Severe Weather Meets Data Recovery
Meterologists are warning that a line of powerful thunderstorms moving through the Midwest today have the potential to cause major damage, bringing hail, lightning and damaging winds, according to a Huffington Post report.
The day’s half over, and we’ve not seen reports of anything major, but the National Weather Service believes this line of storms could possibly cause a “derecho,” which is “a massive storm of strong straight-line winds spanning at least 240 miles.”
Wednesday, June 12, “might be the worst severe weather outbreak for this part of the country for the year,” according to Jeff Masters, meteorology director at Weather Underground.
Of course, we at The Data Vault have to wonder about businesses around the area. Louisville, Ky., is one of several cities mentioned in the Huffington Post article who are at 15 times more risk today than normal.
Is your business prepared for power outages? Network outages? Are your critical files safely stored? Do you have a business continuity plan in place? If not, it’s too late to fix that today, but it’s not too late to prepare for the next line of damaging storms. And if not now, when?
Remember, when it comes to managing your critical data, it’s all about the recovery.
