Connecting Families After Hurricane Michael

♪♪♪ The storm hit around 12 o’clock.
We got water on the first floor by 12:15. ♪♪♪ Once the storm moved through,
there was lost communication. There was no communication at all. ♪♪♪ Well, we’ve been down here
for a few days now, and, I haven’t spoken to
my wife in three days. ♪♪♪ Around seven or eight that night,
I stepped out on the balcony, and out of nowhere AT&T service was up.
And I was able to make contact with my brother and let him know that we
were safe and we were okay. ♪♪♪ With the exception of probably
Puerto Rico, this is by far the worst damage I’ve seen. Several times over the
last couple of days, we’ve provided people with service. And, the look on
their face and the warmth from their heart as they were able to reach out to
family and friends and let them know that they were okay – watching that
was just an amazing feeling. ♪♪♪ Had to borrow somebody’s phone.
Guess what? It was AT&T. And, I was able to communicate with my
wife. It’s been great to see how certain companies are able to come in and get
things going and taking care of things that need to be taken care of,
so people can communicate. I’m sorry. ♪♪♪ I mean, y’all are lifesavers.
You really are. You’re the only ones. That’s it.
You’re the only ones who are here. And uh, that’s awesome. (off screen voice):
Would you like to make a call? I would! I hope she answers.
This goes to my wife. (female on phone):
Hello. This is Ginger. Hey Babe, It’s… (laughs).
I’m calling from an AT&T phone. ♪♪♪ (off screen male):
It’s good to hear your voice. ♪♪♪
