Cox Communications offers Disaster Relief Plan for Omaha-area flooding victims

Omaha, Neb. - March 22, 2019 — Due to the extensive flooding and its impact to homes and businesses in the greater Omaha metropolitan area, Cox Communications is implementing its Disaster Relief Plan to impacted Nebraska and Iowa residential and business customers who would like to temporarily suspend their services.

“We understand how important television, Internet, home automation and telephone services are to our customers as they are a primary tool for receiving information and connecting with friends and family,” said Lynne Sangimino, market vice president for Cox Communications. “Activating the Disaster Relief Plan is an important tool to support our neighbors and customers as they work to assess the condition of their homes or businesses.”

The Disaster Relief Plan allows residential customers to keep their existing account, email address and phone number at no charge for up to six months. This will allow customers to check email or voicemail from a computer or phone outside their home. Customers should call 402-933-3000 and select option 4 to activate the plan. Displaced customers who would simply like to transfer their existing services to a new location temporarily or to a new residence can do so at no charge.

Customers in the flooded areas will not be charged for the cost or replacement of damaged Cox video, Internet or telephone equipment. Customers can report lost, stolen or damaged equipment over the phone or at a retail location.
