A Truck Collides with our Building and a Major Earthquake

It was quite a month for many Alaskans - like surviving a major earthquake, just to name one thing.

We have had over 1,800 aftershocks as of yesterday, roads are being repaired, schools are still closed, but no one suffered serious injury - amazing.

At Skurla's, we also started the month with a "jolt" - literally. On November 19th, a truck careened into the front wall of our office.  It destroyed the conference room wall, many of the contents, and part of Jeff's office. We are so grateful that this happened before we opened - the outcome could have been much different.  See pictures below!

And a big shout out to our landlords at Hope Community Resources - they did an outstanding job getting the mess cleaned and the holes boarded up so that we could resume business as usual that day.

Hope Cleans Up

We are grateful no one was injured in either event. 

And are thankful for all that reached out to check on us.  

To all of our customers, we hope that a you fared well during and after the earthquake.

From your team at Skurla's - Thank you!
