Arkansas Storm Victims Offered Phone-Charging Site

Residents of central Arkansas who lost power during a tornado are being offered a chance to charge their electronic devices at mobile generators deployed near heavily damaged areas.

AT&T says it has set up a temporary cell tower near Mayflower and now has six sites set up as charging stations. The company reminds people that text messages go through quicker than phone calls when the call volume is heavy.

In Mayflower, the charging stations are at the high school and middle school.

In Vilonia, the stations are at City Hall and the Beryl Baptist Church.

In Conway, the locations are the AT&T store and Antioch Baptist Church, both on Amity Road.
