verizon-sprint-logos_largeVerizon and Sprint announced that T-Mobile Customers can call and text areas affected by Hurricane Matthew.

Around 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm system, made landfall in Les Anglais, Haiti. Information is still slowly trickling in regarding the full extent of the damage, with reporters reporting “major devastation as the storm felled trees, ripped roofs, and destroyed farms” in Haiti.

For those with loved ones in Haiti, communication at this time is of the essence. And to that end, Verizon is hoping to help connect its customers with family and friends in the wake of the storm. “Verizon is offering free wireless and wireline calling from the United States to Haiti to connect with family and friends,” the mobile service provider said in a statement on Tuesday.

For the next three days (between Tuesday, October 4, and Friday, October 7), Verizon home wireline telephone customers will incur no charges on calls made to Haiti from their U.S. landlines. Moreover, wireless customers will see no charges for either texts or international long distance calls from the States to Haiti.Effective today through October 7, 2016, Sprint (NYSE: S) is waiving all international call and SMS charges for Sprint, Boost and Virgin Mobile customers in the U.S. reaching those in the path of Hurricane Matthew including the Bahamas, Bermuda, Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica and Turks & Caicos. International roaming call and SMS charges for all Sprint customers while in these countries will also be waived.
