Darren Doyle, story:
The Edmonson County Dispatch/911 Center has announced that the 911 lines are currently unavailable when using landlines, due to what appears to be a widespread outage of Windstream.
Director Pat Prunty said there are several counties affected and that the problems reach as far as Lexington.
"We're doing everything we can to get it back up, we're battling it, but that's all we can do for now," Prunty said.
Emergency calls from cell phones were unaffected for those who have signal, Prunty added.
There was no indication of when the landline 911 service would return to normal operation.
