BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – AT&T is working to restore service to its network in the Baton Rouge metro.

In a release, AT&T says Hurricane Ida has caused significant impacts to its network in Louisiana from the massive power outages and storm damage.

AT&T says its wireless network is operating at 60% of normal and they have significant outages in New Orleans and Baton Rouge due to power outages, flooding and storm damage. Some of AT&T’s key network facilities went offline overnight, and some facilities remain down and are inaccessible due to flooding and storm damage.

AT&T’s ‘Network Disaster Recovery’ teams are working to gain access to those locations as soon as possible to restore services.
