Quad/Graphics: New Oklahoma City Plant Survives Tornadoes Unscathed
Press release from the issuing company
May 12, 2003 -- The tornado that tore through Oklahoma City Thursday evening narrowly missed Quad/Graphics' newest printing plant there, touching down just one-half mile south of the construction site and knocking out power and phone service for the night.
And while trees and debris were strewn about on roads leading to the plant from the south, it was business as usual for Quad/Graphics' construction crews on Friday. In fact, the storms have not rattled the resolve or focus of Quad/Graphics employees, Oklahoma City Administrative Plant Manager Steve Horning said. About 100 workers report to work at the plant site every day.
More than 100 people in the surrounding areas were injured during the storm, but no deaths were reported.
