$950,000 of Telephone Property
j Lost in a Night
:L But Jcomm
The 'chilly afternoon of April 10 a light rain began to fall over a
' strip nearly a hundred miles wide, from northeastern to southwestern
:' Nebraska.-" ' ' . - ";- .
As evening came on the rain began. to freeze as it fell on the tele- ;
: phone wires. Before midnight the wires in many places were coated with
ice nearly, an inch thick. Under the weight of the ice, and whipped by a.
rising wind, mile .after mile of telephone poles and wires swayed bade"
and forth and then crashed to the ground. :
, : A survey of this company's damage from the storm in Nebraska
shows the following result:
26,944 miles of wire out of service
21,200 poles broken down or destroyed ;
.71 exchanges in the storm -area
$950,000 property loss
It is a man's size job to reset over 20,000 poles, to reattach the
crossarms and wires to them and to re-establish communication over
telephone wires that if extended in a single line would reach more than
around the world. But service is being rapidly restored by the more
tHan 1,200 telephone repairmen who have been on the job constantly
since the storm. - i .
We take this opportunity to thank our customers for the splendid spirit
. . of co-operation with which you have accepted the unavoidable interruption
of telephone service to many parts of the 'state, and we want to assure you
that we are doing everything possible to hurry the reopening of communi
cation. ' If you desire to talk to any point to which service was shut off by
the storm, please , ask "Long Distance" if the lines are yet open. Every .
N hour, almost, some line is reopened.
