LAFAYETTE, Ind. – AT&T says service has been restored to its wireless customers affected by a nationwide 911 outage.

Officials in Tippecanoe, Madison, Clinton, Madison and Henry counties said the outages may have affected their residents. These people were encouraged to contact local authorities on non-emergency numbers.

  • Lafayette police: (765) 807-1200
  • Clinton County: (765) 654-5563 or (765) 654-4431
  • Madison County: (765) 642-0221 or (765) 648-6775.
  • Henry County: (765) 529-4890

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says the outage did not impact them, so residents with AT&T continued to call 911. AT&T customers who experienced a busy signal or a ringing phone with no answer, were asked can call (317) 327-3811.
