GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — AT&T decided to close one of its call centers in Goldsboro citing damages from Hurricane Matthew and an overall decline in the service it helps provide, according to a statement from a company representative.

In the statement given to CBS North Carolina, the company says the building was one of those flooded in the hurricane aftermath and has been closed since Oct. 10.

For those losing their jobs in Goldsboro, the company says it is offering transfers to locations in Fayetteville, Greensboro and Charlotte. Employees could also take pay and benefits through January then other relief measures for up to 10 weeks.

The company says it has been paying the employees since the building closed earlier this month.
