ALPHARETTA, Ga., Oct. 10, 2018 — For our customers in the Florida Panhandle including coastal Alabama that will feel the effects of Hurricane Michael, Verizon Wireless is saying “We’ve Got Your Back.” From October 10 through October 14, Verizon is providing free calling, texting and data to its postpaid and prepaid customers who reside in the areas of the Florida Panhandle including coastal Alabama that are in the direct path of the storm.  We will closely monitor the storm’s path and impact and will make additions and adjustments as needed, and will communicate those details as those decisions are made.
