Cox Crews Mobilizing to Reconnect Acadiana

Posted: Aug 27, 2020 9:29 AM

Lafayette, La. - Cox has mobilized its employees to begin assessing damage and restoring services outages caused by Hurricane Laura. In times like this we understand it is important to stay connected and we want our services to be there to help you do that.

“Our thoughts are with the Acadiana communities impacted and we will not rest until all of our south Louisiana footprint is reconnected,” said Anthony Pope, senior vice president and region manager of Cox Southeast. “We’re working hard to restore any impacted services with the safety of our employees and customers in mind.”

Our crews will visit area neighborhoods to assess damage and will restore neighborhood services when it is safe to do so and after power crews have completed their repairs.

Cox Solutions Stores in Lafayette, Abbeville, New Iberia and Patterson remain closed for the day. For information on the store closures and other updates please visit cox.com.

To help customers keep up to date with the latest news weather and information, customers can download the Contour app on Apple or Google Play. With Cox TV subscriptions, customers have access to the Weather Channel and KLAF NBC which are always available. We’ve also partnered with KATC ABC to bring you their coverage through Sunday.

As the recovery efforts begin, Cox would like to remind residents:

· Keep away from loose, dangling or down lines. Treat every line as if it is an active power line.

· Avoid placing storm debris near Cox pedestals in your yard to prevent damage
