A fiber communication line has been cut somewhere in the region, which has caused some phone issues for the county, according to Edmonson County 911 Communication Director Pat Prunty.
Prunty said the calls affected at the moment are cell phone calls made to land lines or land line calls made to cell numbers. Cell-to-cell calling is not affected with local carriers, nor is land line-to land line calling at this time, he said.
The 911 system and current dispatch telecommunications are also currently not affected.
"We are trying to locate and repair the line right now," he said. "It will likely be several hours before it is repaired."
