The tragic destruction caused by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria is still fresh on everyone's mind. And while the images of flooded streets and submerged homes loom large, it's worth it to consider the structures that survived as well.
Recent storms were notable for the widespread, unsparing damage they caused. But even in the face of unprecedented natural disasters, some structures managed to weather the wind and rain unscathed.
The New York Times recently profiled several data centers located at the center of these storms. Even as wind speeds increased and flood waters rose, these facilities kept the lights on and the floors dry. Some even served as shelters for employees and their families looking for a safe haven.
