As our friends, families, and colleagues all know, Portland and areas all across Oregon are experiencing a record-breaking heat wave.  Previously unimaginable temperatures of 110 degrees and higher are being felt throughout the region, forcing many businesses and public services to close early or shut down completely.

At Hokusei North America, we’ll still be working, but will be smart about not pushing ourselves too hard during the oppressive heat.  We hope that all of our customers and business partners in Oregon do the same, and take care of themselves and their staff.  It’s important to stay cool and hydrated, and given any heat illness symptoms, please don’t hesitate to contact medical personnel.

This heat wave will be over (hopefully) soon, looking forward to getting back out again!  Until then, stay cool everyone!
