911 service in LaRue County has been partially restored.
According to dispatch, “most” landline 911 calls are being routed correctly. Cell phone 911 calls are “hit-and-miss.”
The system went down about 11 p.m. Saturday when it appeared a direct lightning strike hit the phone lines. The surge knocked out the trunk cabinet that controls the phone system.
