Lafayette, LA – A team of LUS Fiber engineers and technicians, in coordination with ongoing mutual aid efforts, were dispatched to Vinton, LA on Saturday to reestablish connectivity for critical support services in the city, just west of Lake Charles, which has seen extensive damage from Hurricane Laura.

The LUS Fiber crew will be focused on building infrastructure to connect Vinton’s City Hall and Police Department so that both will be able to operate and facilitate the massive recovery efforts needed within the community. The crew will also be assisting in efforts to reestablish communications across the city.
