Nashville, TN – AT&T continues to work to bring power to our facility damaged by Friday’s explosion in Downtown Nashville. Teams worked through the night to bring in a second large portable generator to provide additional power.
We are working this morning to get the remaining wireline equipment that is not online connected to power from the second generator.
Unfortunately, our plans to bring commercial power back have been delayed due to recently discovered additional damage to where power comes into the building.
Our work to clean up from the blast is continuing. Yesterday, our teams have achieved over 95% completion of cleanup on the 1st floor and more than 80% completion of water cleanup on the 2nd floor of the building.
Teams on site are monitoring safety practices, including social distancing and face coverings. We are also bringing in additional safety equipment, including items like masks, goggles, and hand sanitizer.
We’ll continue to provide additional updates here as our recovery progresses.
