ADTRAN, Digium in recovery mode after Northern Alabama tornado spree

ADTRAN (www.adtran.com) and Digium (www.digium.com) is currently recovering from the massive hit of tornados that swept through the southeast, with primary power restored to its facilities yesterday.  Digium says none of its personnel appeared to have been injured, but several employees sustained “sustained personal property loss or damage,” according to a blog post by CEO Danny Windham on April 28.

Northern Alabama was hit by a string of tornados on Wednesday, April 27, sweeping across the state and clobbering multiple counties, including Madison County and the city of Huntsville.   The storms took out houses and power, resulting in a dusk-to-dawn curfew in many places. 

Commercial power was cut to the Huntsville, Alabama high tech campus on Wednesday – where ADTRAN and Digium have their HQs. Both companies had their Huntsville facilities closed until power was restored late on Tuesday evening, May 3.

Both companies are now back in full operation, but employees continue to cope with the aftermath of the tornados destruction.
