Hurricane Harvey- Americolds efforts


People are still be rescued from the rising tides as Harvey stalls on the Houston/Rockport area. Americold Logistics told effected employees yesterday that they have a job in Ft.Worth & Dallas locations. They will have to find away up here, but then Americold will provide them and their immediate family lodging, food, clothing, and anything else required until they can return to their city of employment. Americold is sending truck loads of food to the affected areas.  The Houston & LaPorte plants are under 4′ water above loading docks. Fortunately, the power is still own in the buildings.

Labor Day 2017, the Houston plant is up and running. Still waiting to hear on other plant affected.

October 2017, the plants are back in operation in Houston and La Porte and people are trying to rebuild their lives one stone at a time. Americold gave the employees effected three days off with pay. Some had lost every material possession while others were just inconvenienced by receding storm waters.

The Dallas & Ft. Worth plants sent care packages to the afflicted in the first days of the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
