Phone service restored after large-scale outage reported in Tri-State

Local

INDIANA (WEHT) — Several Sheriff’s Offices in the area are reporting a large-scale service outage with Verizon customers.

An outage map to see if your area is affected is available at downdetector.com.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff says Evansville Central Dispatch is dealing with minor glitches as a result of the service outages. The Sheriff said callers are still able to get through to 911 and if someone needs emergency services they are available.

Authorities also ask that people not call 911 to ask about or to report service issues. Service issues should be reported to the mobile carrier directly.

Authorities say calling 911 for a non-emergency only ties up 911 operators who are trying to help others.
