Phone Service Restored To Thousands

Land line long distance and internet services are back up after being down since early Saturday afternoon.

Windstream officials say vandals cut a copper cable in the Big Creek area of Clay County which caused the outage. More than three thousand people around the Hazard area were affected. Many could not dial 911 and that left some emergency services feeling helpless.

Police urge everyone to report copper theft to their local police department.
