16 centers that process 911 calls in Texas and Louisiana by Monday, according to the Federal Communications Commission.

Cell phone service was severely limited in the coastal counties of Refugio and Aransas - where 85 and 95 percent, respectively, of cellular towers were still down Monday, according to FCC data released Monday afternoon. Just four of the 26 cellular towers in Refugio County were still operating Monday.
