Additional AT&T statement (5 pm CST)

We’re putting the full-force of our disaster recovery efforts into 
responding to this morning’s explosion in Nashville, including bringing in 
regional resources and our National Disaster Recovery teams.

Power is essential to restoring wireless and wireline communications and 
we are working with law enforcement to get access to our equipment and 
make needed repairs. Given the damage to our facility it will take time to 
restore service. We have already rerouted significant traffic from this 
facility and are bringing in other equipment, including numerous portable 
cell sites to the area.

There are serious logistical challenges to working in a disaster area and 
we will make measurable progress in the hours and days ahead. We're 
grateful for the work of law enforcement as they investigate this event 
while enabling us to restore service for our customers.

We'll continue to provide updates here as our recovery progresses.
