BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Several cell phone service providers have announced they will be providing relief for customers during the coming potential for severe weather.

AT&T is providing unlimited talk, text, and data access to AT&T Wireless and AT&T Prepaid customers in 22 parishes from July 12 to July 18.

AT&T says they will issue credits and waive additional service charges for wiresless customers with billing addresses and prepaid customers with phone numbers in zip codes within these parishes.

AT&T customers may still receive alerts during these dates, but bills will reflect credits and waived charges.
