Phone, Internet Outages Hit Big Sandy

Residents in the town of Big Sandy experienced phone and internet disruptions this morning, and according to a Verizon worker, damage to a Verizon fiber optic line was to blame.

Verizon quickly repaired the line when they found out about the outages. Big Sandy city officials now say that the line is fixed, and the outage was brief. Only residents within the city limits of Big Sandy were said to be affected.
