Hargray employees stay on the island to monitor local telecom network through Hurricane Matthew
Frank Boersma isn’t originally from the Lowcountry, but he’s no stranger to hurricane season. Far from it. The director of network engineering and planning for Hargray Communications hails from Michigan, has traveled the world as an officer in the U.S. Army, is a 20-year telecom veteran, and has four hurricanes under his belt. So when he volunteered to remain on Hilton Head Island as Hurricane Matthew gouged the East Coast, he had a good idea what he might encounter.
