27 de abril de 2024

Update: April 29, 2024

T-Mobile’s network is operating as usual across Nebraska, Iowa, Oklahoma and Texas.

T-Mobile's emergency teams supplied generators to power Tractor Supply stores in Ardmore and Sulphur, OK, as well as connectivity to support their response efforts and community outreach. Tractor Supply is a lifeline in impacted communities, providing essentials like bottled water, generators, flashlights, gas cans and more that people need as they recover in the wake of the tornados. Our teams are currently located at the Tractor Supply store in Sulphur, OK (2900 W Broadway Ave, Sulphur, OK 73086) providing Wi-Fi, power for charging and charging supplies to anyone who needs it. We are also providing the same services at the Relevant Community Church in Elkhorn, NE (21220 Elkhorn Dr., Elkhorn, NE 68022).
