BATON ROUGE – Cell phone provider AT&T announced Thursday night it would provide some relief to customers affected by flooding across the state.
According to a release, the company said it would offer credits to customers in certain parishes for service disruptions.
During the initial onset of flooding, many customers in Baton Rouge and Livingston Parish did not have cell phone service. AT&T attributed it Sunday to power outages and significant flooding caused by severe weather.
The provider said service disruptions in Ascension, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Livingston, Point Coupee, St. Helena, St. James, West Baton Rouge, and West Helena parishes will receive a one-time credit worth 50 percent off the cost of your monthly service.
Also, customers in parishes declared in a state of emergency who received data overage charges for usage between Aug. 14 and Aug 28., 2016, will be credited those charges.
