The subject of a Washington Post article in July 2016, Spackey has been difficult to reach by phone since the hurricane but he managed to send an email on Thursday and speak briefly on the phone before losing communications contact again. His factory is just 60 miles from San Juan.
“This has been truly one of the most difficult experiences in my life, with the potential for becoming much worse,” he wrote.
