Bell County Communications Center Director Michael Harmon says heavy equipment cut three large fiber cables Monday, causing the outage. AT&T advises that repairs are 80% complete as of 9am, Tuesday.
Due to an outage at the Temple Lake AT&T Central Office, Temple residents may have difficulty calling 911.
If you call 911 and are unable to make the call, you may call Temple PD at 254-298-5500.
The amount of time it will take to restore service is not known.
The Bell County Communications Center will send updates as soon as they have more information.
