Lowe’s to Lend Support to Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts

In preparation for Hurricane Dorian’s impending arrival in the United States, Lowe’s has officially activated their “Emergency Command Center.”. Located in Mooresville, North Carolina, the “Command Center” oversees the dispatching of emergency supplies to areas that will be impacted. This includes the pre-staging of trucks and the evaluation of what extra supplies will be needed as the hurricane develops. . Hurricane Dorian, which was initially expected to hit Florida, is now predicted to hit South and North Carolina as early as Thursday. According to the company's website, more than 4,000 truckloads of supplies have already been shipped to coastal stores. They’ve also staged multiple flood trucks outside of predicted impact zones, with the intent to mobilize as soon as it is safe to do so. . Additionally, around 300 employees have received specialized training and are ready to provide additional support in impacted regions.
