First reporting September 11 at 3 p.m., updates below.

According to complaints seen across Facebook and a call to the AT&T support line, AT&T coverage is down across most of northern Beaufort County and likely will be through Monday morning.

That's all we know on this outage so far, but we'll keep you in the loop as we hear more.

Update September 11, 4:35 p.m.: We've heard back from an AT&T contact that reports multiple cell sites in and near Beaufort are currently providing degraded service.

AT&T is currently working to restore service and while no estimate is available the hope is that Monday all should be well. 

Update September 13: If you're still curious, The Island Packet has a brief that is mostly notables as it points out this was all thanks to a cable being cut.
