San Bernardino Emergency Calls Back to Normal After Verizon Glitch
SAN BERNARDINO (KTLA) -- Service has been fully restored to thousands of residents in San Bernardino County after they temporarily lost access to emergency phone lines Thursday, sheriffs officials said.

The high desert areas of Victorville, Hesperia, Apple Valley and Adelanto had their emergency services restored around 6:50 p.m. Thursday after a damaged Verizon fiber-optic line shut down access to the county's 911 system for several hours, San Bernardino County Sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller said.

Some cell phone callers were also affected.

Sheriff's says some voice and Internet services are still down while crews work to solve the damaged line.
