Secret Service's LA field office communications damaged

The U.S. Secret Service released news that their L.A. field office's communications site at Mt. Disappointment was severely damaged, with equipment lost. Excerpt from their official statement:

"The exact amount of loss and damages are still being assessed. Communications systems are still functioning using a back-up communications site. No essential loss of communications services to the Secret Service have resulted, and we continue to assess overall damage. To be completely accurate, the coverage from the back-up communications site is not as strong therefore some spotty coverage may result [in] portions of the Los Angeles area."
