Terry Hlavinka, general manager of Hlavinka Equipment Co. in East Bernard, Texas, reflects on preparing for Hurricane Harvey and the physical effects of the storm on multiple dealership locations, most notably severe flooding at the Nome, Texas, store. He also discusses productivity setbacks in the aftermath, including many employees being unable to commute to work, while also commending volunteering efforts from the Hlavinka staff across Texas. Hlavinka later describes the once-historic potential of cotton yields in the East Bernard region, and how the storm accounted for an estimated 40% hit on harvested acres.
