At this year’s Science and Technology Meeting on the 2018 Hurricane Season, we were lucky enough to have Storm Team 5’s Chief Meteorologist Steve Weagle as the keynote speaker. Steve is one of the foremost experts on hurricanes in South Florida as he has been tracking storms for 20 years including Hurricanes Frances, Jeanne, Wilma and Andrew.

Steve helped the Chamber of the Palm Beaches members understand the dangers of these powerful storms and how we can best prepare for them. Industry professionals and business owners from the West Palm Beach area were gathered for the 2018 Technology Meeting Luncheon Sponsored by PuraTech Restoration Services and discussed topics from storm preparations, safety before, during and after the storm, learning from prior storms, evacuation zones, and new storm tracking technology.

Proud sponsor PuraTech Restoration is a local veteran owned and operated business here in Palm Beach County. PuraTech is an industry expert in mitigating a variety of storm related issues including roof tarps, dry outs, mold remediation, water damage clean up, fire and smoke damage. Owner and Operator Blake Harkcom’s biggest piece of advice post storm is “Don’t hesitate to contact us for a free visual inspection if you suspect you may have a roof leak or other water damage.” Having a licensed professional inspect right away and identify the source of the problem can dramatically mitigate the damage to your home or business allowing your home or business to be fully restored like the damage never happened as quickly as possible.
