In my personal experience, phone lines tend to not work after hurricanes.

And even if they do work, the network usually has too much traffic to allow even a simple conversation.

In my personal experience, phone lines can work during and after hurricanes. Our phone service never went out back during isabel. Now our power was out 9 days.

That's interesting. Isabel had our phones down for several hours, even though we barely got touched. Maybe Bellsouth just has us on a ****ty network.
