911 outage repaired across southeast U.S.

911 calls in many parts of Eastern Carolina are once again going through.

The widespread problems with 911 were reported earlier today and involved from both cell phones and landline phones.

The various phone companies worked on the problem. State officials say while the 911 calls are once again going through, they are still investigating exactly what caused the outage.

If you can't reach 911, officials say you should then call the 911 center's main number.
