HOUSTON. TX - Semptember 4, 2017 -- On
August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey struck Texas as a Category 4
Hurricane with winds topping 130 mph. What made Harvey
especially devistating was the fact that it stalled over Southeast
Texas dropping over 51 inches of rain in the area. The area
in and around Houston, Texas was especially hurt by this storm with
epic flooding that has never been seen in our history.
Houston is our home. Virtual-Q was founded in Houston
in 2009 and is headquartered here. Most of our staff is based
in and around Houston.
I am happy to report that other than the temporary
inconveniences of a power outage at our homes and a voluntary
evacuation order, Harvey came, scared us a little, and went.
In addition, I am happy to report that all of our staff is in
good shape. No damage to their homes to report.
Everyone is safe and dry.
In addition to that, all of our offices and our data centers
also made it with no problems. There is no flood, wind or
power damages to report.
All that being said, we all realize how incredibly blessed we
all are to get through this storm without so much as debris in our
yards to clean up. Many of our neighbors, friends, rich,
medium and poor, we not so fortunate. As I am writing this,
we are fully aware that Harvey has displaced over a million people
(20% of population) and destroyed nearly 200,000 homes.
We are now directing our efforts from survival to helping those
who were not so fortunate. All of our team is donating time,
money and needed supplies to help our brothers and sister in
