AT&T offers stores for those without power to charge devices

MIAMI (WSVN) - AT&T has offered options for South Florida residents without power to charge their devices.

On Wednesday, Kelly Starling, AT&T spokesperson, said anyone without a way to charge their devices will be welcome to visit any company-owned AT&T store to charge their devices.

Starling added in the same news release that AT&T set up a charging station at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition Center, but this is exclusively for evacuees being sheltered at the location.

The trailer at the Miami-Dade County Fair can, Starling said, charge up to 60 devices at a time and is near the Fuchs Pavilion. AT&T is also expected to set up a WiFi hotspot at the location to help evacuees, many of which are Florida Keys residents, file their FEMA claims.

In addition, ATT&T gave out approximately 200 AT&T PREPAID devices to evacuees at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition Center activated with service for 30 days, which includes unlimited talk and text. After the 30 days, the recipients can chose to get more prepaid service or not, but the device is theirs to keep.
