October Digest – COO Reviews Hurricane Dorian

“This kind of note seems like an annual occurrence for me now. Each year since 2015, we’ve had a storm event impact the island in some way – a 1000-year flood, hurricanes and tropical storms, and even an unprecedented snowstorm. I’m grateful to report that the island as a whole fared well in Hurricane Dorian. While we had a big mess to clean up, island facilities, infrastructure, and homes were spared significant damage.”
Read COO Jimmy Bailey’s letter focusing on Hurricane Dorian in the October issue of Digest. The issue also features an introduction to the work of KICA’s water management task forces, and a look at October’s many exciting events, including the annual favorite Dogtoberfest.
