Time Warner Cable video, voice and data services are restored in the multiple areas hit by the weekend tornadoes in Wilson and Johnston Counties. Crews worked late into Saturday night to restore services.

A majority of the outages were power related. Once power was restored in the impacted areas and clearance was obtained from local authorities, Time Warner Cable crews began to work immediately. There was severe plant damage on London Church Road and Upchurch Road, close to where a tornado touched down. Cable and Fiber had to be repaired. “The Time Warner Cable family is extremely saddened by the loss of life from this storm,” said Tom Adams, Time Warner Cable regional vice president of operations. “Our thoughts are with the families that lost loved ones and with all victims who have devastating damage to their homes.”

At the height of the outage, approximately 3,000 customers were without services. All Time Warner Cable customers were back on by 7pm Saturday night. If any customers are still experiencing problems, please call Time Warner Cable at 1-800-TWCABLE.
