Hurricane Matthew

FIRST TO OPEN, LAST TO CLOSE: HOME DEPOT’S HURRICANE HEADQUARTERS

August 25, 2017

Hurricanes know how to make an entrance.

With winds reaching more than 155 miles per hour, the tropical cyclone can cause flash floods, storm surges and tornadoes, leaving behind devastated coastlines and homes.

From Hurricane Preparedness Workshops to managing availability of emergency supplies, Home Depot works around the clock before, during and after a storm to keep our customers and associates safe.

Our stores are a vital part of community infrastructures during disasters. Our mission is to be the last store to close and the first to reopen, keeping in mind the safety of our associates and storm conditions.

A complex effort by the merchandising, supply chain and operations teams make that happen. Check out a behind-the-scenes look at how Home Depot takes action when a hurricane hits.
