Several agencies say that after hours of being offline, phone lines are back up in Vermilion Parish.

On Wednesday, April 27, 2022, several agencies including the Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Office, Kaplan Police Department, Abbeville Police Department and Delcambre Police Department reported that phone lines were not working again.

VPSO says that the outage was due to an AT&T phone company system malfunction.

For emergencies in the parish, residents were asked to call (337)652-1707 or (318)355-3904. Kaplan, Delcambre, and Abbeville Police asked that those needing assistance call 911.

Cameron Parish officials also reported downed phone lines due to the AT&T issue. They have also been restored.

Last week, AT&T phone lines were down for Vermilion and Cameron Parish agencies. The outage lasted a few hours.
