A telephone service outage impacting parts of North Douglas County has
been restored.

An update from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said customers of
CenturyLink in the Yoncalla, Elkton, Scottsburg, Drain and Loon Lake
areas lost their phone service around 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday. That may
have prohibited them from dialing 9-1-1 to summon emergency services
from a landline, though those with cellular service may have been able
to get through.
