THE FEDERAL Communications Commission has announced an investigation
into a communications outage that has disrupted 911 service across the
country, it announced Friday.

Outages at Louisiana-based telecommunications giant CenturyLink began
on Thursday and are still not resolved in some areas. The company
tweeted Friday that it was working on restoring service and was aware
the outages had impacted emergency calls.
