It's tough to avoid the ads for Oreck vacuum cleaners on cable news. After their corporate HQ in New Orleans and their factory in Mississippi were n the sites of Hurricane Katrina, they have been focused on getting up and running again, to keep the company running and to keep jobs available for those who are still around.

You might ask about contingency plans:

“We always had contingency plans for a possible disaster in either New Orleans or on the Gulf Coast, but we never really planned on a storm so large that it would have an impact on both places,” chief executive Tom Oreck said.

Good luck to the Oreck family and company, I hope they can keep their American factory running.
