Waffle House Index Indicating Red

Waffle House has indicated on a recent Facebook post that its well-known disaster recovery index is indicating red due to shutdowns amidst the Coronavirus outbreak. There are, as of this writing, 418 closed restaurants with 1574 remaining open.

After years of noting the resiliency of Waffle House restaurants, FEMA director Craig Fugate developed this index to quickly communicate the level of hurricane damage in an area: Green = offering a full menu; Yellow = serving a limited menu (reduced power or  limited food supply); Red = not operating.
