The multi-state 911 outage that impacted Minnesota on Monday resulted in 135 emergency calls failing to be routed to a dispatcher, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety says.

These calls were made to 24 public safety answer points in Minnesota, CenturyLink's preliminary review found, according to DPS.

However, DPS believes the 48-minute disruption was actually longer, and "a number" of 911 calls that failed to be routed to a dispatcher were not included in CenturyLink's review.
