COLUMBIA, Mo. - A widespread phone and internet outage, stemming from construction work in Kansas City, caused statewide issues including an electronic system failure in the Cole County Jail.

Cole County Sheriff John Wheeler said the Monday morning outage resulted in a shutdown of certain systems, including cell door operations. The doors, which are normally operated electronically throughout the day, had to be mechanically opened with keys for a full day.
