AT&T is confirming reports of vandalism at several East and South Bay locations that cut off service to some customers over the past 24 hours.

A spokesperson says lines were cut in 15 locations causing a loss of both phone and Internet service to customers in Walnut Creek, Orinda and Morgan Hill.

The outages began yesterday morning.

AT&T crews worked through the night to repair those lines and expect all customers to be back up and running by Friday evening. They would not say how many customers were affected.
