Hurricane Florence

Alpharetta, GA For our customers on the Southeast Coast that will feel the wrath of Hurricane Florence, Verizon Wireless is saying “We’ve Got Your Back.”  From September 14 through September 17, Verizon is providing free calling, texting and data to its postpaid and prepaid customers who reside in the areas of Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia that are in the direct path of the storm. The initial offer is now being extended through September 25 for customers in the hardest hit areas of North Carolina.

"As we enter the final hours before Hurricane Florence makes landfall we hope this allows our customers in these areas to worry about one less thing and focus on their safety and security," said Russ Preite, president, Southeast Market for Verizon Wireless. “This is just one way we can help residents as this potentially dangerous storm challenges the Southeast coast.”

 Additionally, as part of Verizon’s ongoing commitment to those on the front lines of public safety, speed caps restrictions have been lifted for first responders in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Verizon values the safety and security of all residents in the impacted communities, including the company’s employees. Before visiting, please contact your local store as store hours may vary depending on local impact.
