Residents also reported that Verizon data service was down as well.

Atascadero resident Julie Thompson reports that cable lines were downed in front of her house near the 2900 block of Monterey Road in Atascadero. “A truck hit the lines because they were too low and pulled the pole and the lines down in front of our house and the whole property line,” she said.
