As you all probably know, Hurricane Harvey has left a path of devastation in the greater Houston area in the United States. In the Houston area, DNV GL has an office of several hundred colleagues, including many who support our Software activities. We are relieved to say that all staff have been accounted for, and there are no reports of any serious injuries.
Many of our colleagues are dealing with flooding issues, and some have been evacuated from their homes. The DNV GL offices in Katy are scheduled to stay closed through the rest of this week. We are endeavoring to keep our clients’ business moving forward from our other global locations. The safety of our team members and their families come first.
We are heartened by the response from our customers, who have asked how they can help. DNV GL has been a global partner with the Red Cross for many years now, and they are best suited to assist in this emergency. The American Red Cross has made it easy for individuals to donate small amounts that add up to big relief. If you have a US mobile phone you can text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10. Charges will appear on your wireless bill.
