Hurricane Irene- Photos from Lanmark360
As everyone knows New Jersey was hit hard by hurricane Irene last weekend. Thankfully, all of our families here at Lanmark360 are safe and survived the storm with minimal damage. Streets and basements have flooded, but we were thrilled the storm ended up being less severe than predicted.
During the storm, we unfortunately lost e-mail service for a few hours, but as soon as service was restored e-mails starting flooding our inboxes (no pun intended) with photos our team took of the damage surrounding their homes.
We wanted to share with our readers some of the unbelievable images we’ve collected over the past few days.
Two days before the storm, the supermarket shelves were bare.

Again, we are very lucky to have experienced only minimal damage from Hurricane Irene. We are thankful to be back in the office, running smoothly with little break in our services. Thank you to our dear friends and clients who continually checked in with us to make sure we were okay.
That storm was scary. I work at a Middletown New Jersey emergency dentist and discussed it with some locals, one of which lost his boat in the storm.
A good friend of mine that works for NJNG has recently told me that demand for gas fired generators in the wake of the storm jumped 600%, and only now are they getting through the backlog of orders.
