NEW ORLEANS, LA — The city of New Orleans is trying to function without computers after Friday's cyber-attack.

City officials say meetings have been canceled and the IT department is working around the clock to get the city network back online.

New Orleans officials say they have 50 National Guard, state and federal partners working together to restore the city's computer network.

Officials say about 4000 computers were impacted and it's taking several hours a day to restore each computer.

This comes just a week after the city of Pensacola, Florida suffered a cyber attack and earlier this year the city of Baltimore, Maryland refused to pay hackers $76,000 in ransom, which the city refused to pay, and cost the city millions of dollars to repair.
