The devastating storms in Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas have cut communications, slowing the rescue and aid process for the victims and their families.
AT&T put out an official statement on the matter, the company disclosed its immediate plans to help in the relief effort stating: “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tornado that hit the Oklahoma City area Monday. We are coordinating with local authorities and bringing in additional resources. We recommend text messaging for communications with family, friends and loved ones given heavy call volumes”.
The company went on to say. “Also, in an effort to help Oklahomans impacted by the tragic tornado, we are waiving voice, data and text overage charges through June 30 for customers in the affected areas”.
We would also like to remind customers who would like to support the Red Cross’ efforts, they can text REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10. “The donation will be charged on their monthly AT&T bill” according to AT&T.
