Hurricane Katrina disrupts wireless service

Flooding and power losses caused by Hurricane Katrina disrupted wireless and wireline phone service in parts of the Gulf Coast. Wireless carriers reported that although no wireless towers were downed, some stopped operating because of power loss or were knocked off network due to flooding. As soon as conditions are safe, wireless carriers will move into the areas to begin restoring service.
