Did I Just Feel The Building Shake?

Written on: August 24th, 2011 in Research Room

That’s the question a lot of people were asking yesterday. We are really fortunate here in Delaware. We usually don’t have the bad weather that the rest of the country does.  And now we are getting prepared for Hurricane Irene.  Did you know that the archives has lots of photographs, video, governors papers, and newspaper clippings on the most severe natural disasters in Delaware history?  From snow storms to hurricanes, you can stop by and take a look.

Did you know that we also wear another hat  and help state agencies recover records in the event of a disaster?  We have already starting sending messages out for offices to get records and boxes off the floor and to get their disaster plans out and go over them with their staff.  Do you have a disaster plan
