There But For The Grace Of God....

OneDomain's Birmingham HQ is South of downtown, in Riverchase, near the community of Hoover. About 45 miles WSW of Riverchase is Tuscaloosa, the home of the University of Alabama. Here's what Tuscaloosa looks like this morning after a second wave of storms hit late Wednesday:

As far as I can tell from company emails, no employee from ODI was injured during yesterday's storms and tornadoes, but there was a great deal of damage at many homes and everyone knows someone whose home has been damaged or destroyed.

Many of our workers are helping friends, neighbors and relatives. It's just the way ODI people ARE. But those who are not are currently staffing our telephone helplines (landlines are down, but we use VOIP) and Bomgar support machines. Our Birmingham office is OPEN.

If there is anything I can do to help ODI clients during this time, just push the button that says "Call Me" over there ---------------------------->.
