UPDATE: Service was restored Friday evening. 

ORIGINALLY POSTED Friday afternoon: 

Service from “numerous” landlines to Hampshire County’s 911 are out again, the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office says.

A press release says an issue by phone utility Frontier in Augusta is the problem, with no time estimate of when service will be restored.

“We’re not sure at this time who all is affected by this outage,” Chief Deputy Nathan Sions said.

If you have an emergency and your landline will not connect to 911, use a cell phone to call.
