DEER PARK, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2012) - The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that Hurricanes Katrina and Rita caused $5B in commercial damage and warns that severe hurricanes packing winds up to 150 MPH can cause catastrophic damage to industrial plants along the Gulf Coast and even miles inland.
"Manufacturing facilities should plan and prepare now for the high winds, flooding, loss of power and supplies, disruptions and devastation that may be caused by this year's hurricane season," said Mike Mitchum with ODIN Demolition.
"To help our industrial community prepare for the upcoming hurricane season," said Mitchum, ODIN would like to share a little advice that can save a lot of liability, damage and dollars:
- Clean up the loose items in your bone yards such as valves, process equipment, pipe, beams, sheet metal, old timbers, and idled units that can become dangerous missiles.
- Remove items that can float such as empty storage tanks, accumulating drums or scrap piles.
"Rather than let something of value turn into a liability," said Mitchum, "ODIN will remove idled surplus, bone yards and empty storage tanks before they become a liability."
