Synapse Partner, Mike Gill, Featured in Leader’s Edge Article on Energy Industry’s Response to Hurricane Laura.

Perspectives from Synapse Services partner, Mike Gill, were recently featured in a Leader’s Edge article by Jack Sullivan on the energy sector’s preparation for and response to hurricane Laura, which pummeled the Louisiana coast in August, 2020.

Laura initially made landfall as a category 4 storm, and total insured losses are  estimated in the $8 billion to $12 billion-dollar range, with some analysts providing numbers on the lower-end of this range. Losses were mitigated by the fact that the storm meandered its way between the metropolitan centers of New Orleans and Houston, making landfall in Cameron, Louisiana, a point almost equidistant from the cities to the east and west. In total, roughly half a million people were evacuated.
