COLUMBUS COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) – Columbus County officials say phone and computer services have been disrupted in the county after a communications fiber line was severed Thursday.
The line was cut somewhere between Lake Waccamaw and Whiteville, with the disruption affecting multiple county offices including 911 services.
A county spokesperson said all 911 calls are being routed to a neighboring county to dispatch to local emergency entities.
All 911 services will remain uninterrupted during repair to the fiber line, the spokesperson said.
