Flooding causes outages of telephone service

WARREN — Some CenturyLink customers in Warren and Leavittsburg have been experiencing network outages affecting internet and voice services since Friday, according to Stephanie Meisse, communications manager at CenturyLink.

The outages are affecting both residences and businesses, and are the result of damage to underground cables in manholes caused by continued flooding, she said.

Crews have been working at both locations to restore service, said Meisse, but weather conditions have delayed the process.

It is unknown when service will be returned, but Meisse assured the company is working as quickly as possible to repair the damages.
