Miniature Expressions Hurricane Irma Update
Hurricane Irma was an enormous storm leaving devastation across most all of Florida. Central Florida, where we are located, was spared much of the devastation seen in South Florida.
The impact to our operations has been limited to the loss of utilities. After the storm had passed, over 50% of Central Florida was left without power. This included our employees as well as our offices and shipping center. Priority of course has been for the safety and well-being of the Miniature Expressions family.
For our customers that may have placed an order immediately prior to or during the hurricane aftermath, there may have been a delay in the shipping of your order. Once a State of Emergency was declared, all shipments were halted regardless of where they were in transit; this applies to the US Postal Service, FedEx, and UPS. Orders placed while Miniature Expressions personnel were attending to personal safety were not processed.
As the week has progressed, we have begun to return to normal operations. Our staff are eager and ready to return. Everyone here looks forward to a little happy distraction. Shipments are moving again. We are all excited as we head into Fall gardening and the holiday seasons.
Thank you for all your concern and warm wishes for our safety!
Our hearts go out to everyone left with so much loss.
