Blue Diamond Industries and Hexatronic Group is committed to the communities and states we serve and conduct business in, so when a disaster occurs, we partner with nonprofit organizations to help those in need and support those communities.
The Eastern Kentucky flooding has taken lives, destroyed critical infrastructure and damaged homes and livelihoods. Unfortunately, the rescue efforts have been hindered due to power outages persisting, with more than 10,000 homes and businesses remaining in the dark. Regrettably, more rain is to strike the already drenched and devastated Eastern Kentucky area bring further risk of more flooding in the days to come. Our hearts go out to all those families and communities impacted by this devastating weather.
My guess is it will take months to fully assess the damage, but the need for assistance is immediate.
Blue Diamond Industries is in the process of donating to the KSR Flood Relief Fund and Appalachian Crisis Aid to support emergency services for people whose homes and livelihoods have been disrupted by flooding. I have enclosed the weblinks if other companies are interested in donating.
This disaster occurs during an already challenging time for Eastern Kentucky as it was recovering from the economic impacts of the COVID shutdowns.
Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by the flooding.
