People in the New Orleans area and around the country reported intermittent outages of their Verizon cell phone service.

"Verizon Wireless is currently experiencing an intermittent voice, text and data services interruption for customers in some markets in the south. Our engineers are aware of the issue and are working diligently to resolve it," the company said.

Many people trying to call to non-Verizon customers reported their calls would not go through.  Others complained their text messages were not going through.

People were even having trouble reaching Verizon to report the outage or get information.
