Hurricane Joaquin is making its way up the East Coast and is predicted to hit land in the Northeastern United States starting Monday evening.

If you have equipment stored in one of our data centers which will be potentially affected by the hurricane, rest assured that Colocation America is making all the necessary preparations to protect our facilities, and the network within, from any hurricane-related potential impacts.

Hurricane Joaquin is currently in Category 4 status with winds reaching 130 miles-per-hour, with outreaching winds hitting areas within a 45 mile radius. The hurricane is expected to affect the areas between North Carolina and Massachusetts. Flooding is expected in those areas.
