Current Operational Update (10/29/2020 3:00 PM)

Hurricane Zeta made landfall near Cocodrie, Louisiana with max sustained winds around 115mph causing widespread power outages across the Greater New Orleans Area. Winds in our area reached upwards of 98mph. As of this morning, we have been able to assess damages at all of our facilities in New Orleans. Thankfully, we can report that we have minimal damage from the storm. The facilities are now secure, and we can report that your products are safe. We hope to fully restore our operations tomorrow morning, however, we do not expect to have power until this weekend as the magnitude of the damage to the power grid is significant. Some operations will be impacted due to the lack of power. We will keep you posted as we continue to work through this recovery effort.
