CommTank Aids New Yorkers with Hurricane Sandy
November 2, 2012
The shutdown of fuel terminals due to power loss in the wake of Hurricane Sandy is putting a strain on the limited fuel supplies in the hardest hit areas of New York and New Jersey. It's not just homeowners that are running out of gas to run their generators. Companies operating on emergency generator power are quickly running out of fuel because their storage tanks are empty and the local suppliers have no fuel to deliver. CommTank was contacted by 16 companies looking to rent additional storage tanks and for deliveries of fuel. We currently have crews in the New Jersey area installing tanks for facilities like Proctor and Gamble’s Avenel manufacturing plant and delivering fuel to the JFK Airport. Our staff and crews have been working round the clock to accommodate as many requests as we can. We hope the additional resources sent there will help speed the recovery from Hurricane Sandy.
