The City of New Orleans said Tuesday that calls from AT&T phones to city phone lines may not go through because of a nationwide outage.?

City officials said in a brief statement that calls placed from AT&T cellphones were failing to reach the city's phone lines.?

AT&T customers across the U.S. reported landline and cell service disruptions Monday, with many Texas customers reporting connectivity issues as Hurricane Beryl tore through the southeastern portion of the state?as a Category 1 storm.?

Houston-based news radio station KTHR reported Monday that AT&T disaster response teams had been deployed in several southeast Texas cities to asses and fix damage caused by Beryl.?

It's unclear if service disruptions elsewhere in the U.S. are related to the storm.?

This is at least?the second time this year that AT&T has grappled with mass outages. In February, thousands of American AT&T customers were left without wireless service during a multi-day outage that impacted Verizon, T-Mobile and other providers as well.?
