Posted: Updated:

COWICHE, WA - A significant fiber line providing phone services to the Cowiche area has been damaged. Land lines in the Cowiche area may not be able to reach 9-1-1 for the next several hours, but most cell phones will still be able to reach 9-1-1 without interruption.

A work crew is on site attempting to make repairs.

If citizens are unable to reach 9-1-1 and need emergency services, all fire stations in the Cowiche area are manned at this time.
