MAUSTON, Wis. (AP) - Emergency 911 service has been restored to multiple southern Wisconsin counties after an outage that lasted roughly seven hours.

WISC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/16wQnk5 ) that service was restored at around 4 p.m. Thursday.

Frontier spokeswoman Karen Miller says the outage happened after an underground cable was inadvertently severed by a third party shortly after 9 a.m. The outage affected 911 phone service and high-speed internet access.
