Emergency services across at least 14 US states have reported outages of their 911 lines on Monday.
Issues were reported by police departments in counties across Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Washington.
Impacted counties reported losing connectivity for 911 phone and SMS services, but did not provide any technical details about the source of the outage.
“ATTENTION: The 911 lines are not operational nationwide. This is for phone calls and text messaging,” the Minneapolis police department wrote on Twitter earlier today at the start of the outage.
