ATLANTA, Sept. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- August ended with Hurricane Harvey pounding the Texas coast and impacting hundreds of our Rollins, Inc. (NYSE: ROL) associates, thousands of customers, as well as multiple operations across our businesses. This month, it was Irma's turn to wreak its havoc on Florida and the adjoining states. We are thankful our employees remained safe through the storms and flooding, although many have endured significant personal property damage. During the height of hurricane season, Rollins employees continue to be our primary concern, and we have resources available to assist in getting them back on their feet.
The Company's field locations that were impacted are recovering to normal operation quickly, with only a few branches unable to function at this time. Our ability to reach and safely service our customers is impaired by the hurricane aftermath; however, every day will bring improvement. Although it will take a momentous effort to recover from the devastation caused by these storms, we are proud of the diligence and commitment our teammates are exhibiting to return our operations back to pre-hurricane status.
