Nationwide cellular phone outage impacts parts of Door County

Centurylink cellular and internet customers experienced service outages nationwide, including parts of Southern Door County.  The outages started early Thursday.  According to a Tweet from Centurylink, engineers had identified a "network element" that impacted services.  Door County Emergency Management and Communications Director Dan Kane says 911 calls made by cell phone in the Brussels area had to take an indirect route into the dispatch center.



The outage also impacted cellular 911 service to Oconto County.  The sheriff's department says those issues have been corrected.
