Waffle House Storm Center activates for Florence

Waffle House Storm Center activates for Florence

As Hurricane Florence, a Category 3 storm, drives toward the East Coast, Waffle House is monitoring the impending risky weather by activating its storm center.

Hurricane Florence may have an outsize impact on sales at fried-chicken chain Bojangles' Inc., while other southern chains like Waffle House are so popular, the Federal Emergency Management Agency uses its sales as a gauge in natural disasters. "The sooner intelligent areas, grocery and corner stores, or banks can re-originate, the sooner native economies will originate up producing income all all over again - signaling a sturdy restoration for that personnel."In a 2016 interview with NPR, Fugate described how FEMA applied the Waffle Condo check". With Hurricane Florence taking aim on the East Coast, this real term is a real measure of hurricane disaster levels. If the store is open with a full menu, the index is green.

Waffle House told USA Today its Storm Center was monitoring Florence, and the team also asked people to "plan ahead and be safe".

FEMA even uses restaurant sales bumps as an indicator in monitoring severe weather, more specifically through the Waffle House Storm Center. If you find a "closed sign" on a Waffle House, it's best to evacuate and don't forget your spouse.

"If we are open quickly after a storm, that means the community is coming back and folks are out, we are getting back to that sense of normalcy", Warner said.

"Since it is a pretty active storm, just stay tuned to our @wafflehousenews Twitter, official announcements will be made there", it tweeted on Wednesday morning. They serve a specialized menu, and the employees stay in a nearby hotel to keep a fresh shift working around the clock. If a Waffle House is closed because there's a disaster, it's bad. A customer-service assistant said that the company had not yet confirmed whether stores will close. It closed locations during Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and Hurricane Harvey past year. At the front of the room, three screens showed storm maps and news coverage of Category 4 hurricane's path.
