The FCC has released its report and analysis of Hurricane Michael impact
on communications: preparation, effect and recovery.
Conclusions and Recommendations
51. Backhaul outages loomed large as an impediment to communications
recovery. Uncoordinated post-storm recovery efforts between and among
communications, utility, and debris removal teams created unnecessary
delays to a speedy return to service. Customers who had communications
service restored – only to lose it again almost immediately because of a
fiber cut – provide a clear example of how better cross-sector
coordination could have improved the restoration process.
