DANIA BEACH, Fla., July 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --  As Tropical Storm Barry strengthens in the Gulf with the potential to make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane, Q Link Wireless CEO Issa Asad has announced that the Lifeline provider will provide free cellphone services to all customers in Louisiana. With New Orleans and the surrounding areas already experiencing torrential downpour amid a declared state of emergency and mandatory evacuations for part of the state, Asad wants to ensure that customers are able to connect with loved ones and local emergency management resources and officials ahead of the storm, by providing unlimited talk, text, data, and 911 through July 31 for every Q Link Wireless customer in Louisiana.

"Residents in the path of Tropical Storm Barry need effective communications to help them prepare and stay out of harm's way," said Asad. "Offering free services to our customers is the right thing to do as the water levels begin to rise around homes in Louisiana."

Instead of worrying about running out of minutes or exceeding data limits, Q Link customers in Louisiana can rest assured that they will be able to communicate at any point before, during, or after the storm.

"The people of Louisiana are in our thoughts and our hearts at this time," said Asad. "We encourage our customers and everyone else in the path of Tropical Storm Barry to stay safe, stay in touch with loved ones, pay attention to emergency updates, and heed the warnings of local officials."
