Much of Big Sur is without communication for the second day

due to a cut line in Greenfield, all landlines, cell phones, and Internet going through AT&T is down in Big Sur isolating this community, 1000 people, even further. Satellite internet and satellite phones are not affected, but emergency call boxes along the highway are. A command post has been established. The BSVFB is on satellite phone, as are other emergency services. AT&T is indicating 12-24 hours to get service restored.

The South Coast landlines come from the south, all internet is by satellite, and we don’t have AT & T service down here, so generally rely on Verizon. Will update when such released. CBs and drums anyone?

  1. Hard to believe in this day and age.

  2. And I always thought that the north coast was connected via Monterey. How can the lines be coming from Greenfield?
