In the early morning hours of July 10th, 2019, New Orleans residents awoke to heavy rain and flooding streets. A week after the flooding, the New Orleans Sewerage & Water Board announced that several pumps across the city were knocked out of service due to lightning strikes. Could lightning pose a serious threat to the city’s pumping stations and cause major flooding in the future? Yes, and here is how!
The 4LP team was chosen as the lightning protection partner for the new North Terminal in 2016 and has been diligently working with our partners since construction started. We are proud to say our team's hard work will protect this beautiful new building and its visitors for years to come.
