LAFAYETTE, La. - Cox has mobilized its employees to begin assessing damage and restoring services outages caused by Hurricane Laura.

"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."

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.
