Internet & Long Distance Services Are Restored

For many of you Saturday night was a communication crisis, but now that crisis appears to be over at least for most.

Long distance and internet services were restored around 10pm Saturday night across parts of eastern Kentucky after being down since early in the afternoon.

Windstream officials say vandals cut a copper cable in the Big Creek area of Clay County, which cut off landline long distance and internet services for more than three thousand people around the Hazard area.

The real danger left some emergency services feeling helpless.

Anyone with information about copper theft is urged to contact your local police.

    TDS phone company can never keep the phones in at my area. The closed down the offices in Hyden KY ad now when you call the main 800 number they act like your stupid and don't know what your talking abut. We do know what were talking about cause its been going on all summer last summer and every time it storms the phones go out. So if theifs ain't stealing to put the phones out then its just TDS Serices in Leslie Co. Leslie co needs more phone options!!
