AT&T's wireless network in Louisiana is operating at more than 90% of normal as of 9:00 Tuesday night.

The update comes just over 48 hours after Hurricane Ida made landfall as a Category 4 storm, knocking out the network's grid in locations across southeastern areas of the state.

Networks in Alabama and Mississippi are both operating normally.

AT&T currently has 16 mobile satellite cell towers on air with additional assets on the way to aid in recovery efforts.

"We understand how important it is to stay connected and will continue to work around the clock until all service is restored," the company said. "We will provide an additional network status update tomorrow morning."

Tuesday morning, AT&T's network was operating at more than 85% of normal.
