Irish speaker at ECU for Hurricane Irene

An Irish newspaper carries the story of a safety consultant scheduled to speak at ECU after Hurricane Irene. Click on the image for a larger size.

 

East Carolina University was mentioned in The Irish News in a story entitled, “Safety consultant caught in hurricane a second time.” The story was about Philip McAleenan, who was scheduled to speak at ECU Aug.29, just after Hurricane Irene had passed through.

McAleenan managed to experience Hurricane Irene while in the United States, but he was also caught in New Orleans in 2004 when Hurricane Ivan struck. He also narrowly missed the Virginia earthquake that was felt in Greenville a few days earlier.

Although his talk was canceled by the weather, McAleenan spoke well of the ECU response to the hurricane, commenting on the efforts made to check on students and clean up after the storm.
