Lafayette, LA – A team of LUS Fiber engineers and technicians, in coordination with ongoing mutual aid efforts, were dispatched to Vinton, LA on Saturday to reestablish connectivity for critical support services in the city, just west of Lake Charles, which has seen extensive damage from Hurricane Laura.
