911 services restored in Darrington, Oso

Update at 6:42 p.m.: Emergency 911 services have been restored to Darrington and Oso. The outage was reported around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Original post: Emergency 911 services are unavailable in Darrington and Oso, Snohomish County, because of damaged fiber-optic cables in the Oso landslide area.

The number of people affected by the outage is unknown and there is no estimate on when service will be restored, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. Residents in the area should phone local police and fire agencies’ numbers for service, the sheriff’s office said.

The damaged cable was in the area of the March 22 mudslide near Oso, which killed 43 people.
