Louisville, Kentucky (IT Business Edge's headquarters) has been hit hard with two major weather-related incidents in the last year. Just recently, more than 200,000 people were without electricity for days after ice blanketed the region. According to today's Louisville Courier-Journal, about 49,000 homes still remain in the dark. This storm came on the heels of damage from the remnants of Hurricane Ike, which pummeled Louisville in September last year.
It's unknown, exactly, how the most recent storm affected businesses in the area. Some had power, some didn't. Here's hoping that they consulted their crisis management and disaster plans, rather than asking "What is a crisis management plan?"
