Groves city buildings without power, phones
GROVES — Groves city buildings are without electricity and phone service due to Hurricane Delta as of Monday morning.
Groves Fire Chief and Emergency Management Coordinator Lance Billeaud said the generator at city hall is not working, which led to the closure of city offices. Other city buildings are operational.
The city phone lines are internet-based, which is the reason the phones are not in working order.
City officials made the announcement of the electrical and phone problems about 9 a.m. Monday on social media.
