This morning, AT&T sent out a message to Oklahoma customers affected by yesterday’s tornado devastation noting that those in the affected areas will have all voice, data and text overages waived through June 30.

The company also reminded AT&T Wireless customers across the country that they can support disaster relief efforts by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999. That text message sends a donation of $10 to the American Red Cross and is charged on the customer’s monthly bill.

Bryan Gonterman, State President for AT&T Oklahoma, said in a statement that “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tornado that hit the Oklahoma City area Monday.

We are coordinating with local authorities and bringing in additional resources. We recommend text messaging for communications with family, friends and loved ones given heavy call volumes.”
