Pre-Storm Preparation

As I type this Hurricane Matthew is currently off the coast of Florida and headed towards the Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina coastline.  At Seras we provide computer services support to businesses across the Midlands. We want to make sure that everyone is safe and is prepared for Hurricane Matthew.  We have a few simple tips for those who are trying to prepare their computer equipment and other technological devices for the damaging effects of this storm.
