The 911 phone service is experiencing an interruption, according to the Reverse Alert System (RAS).

Corpus Christi and Portland are experiencing the interruption and officials state that lines are down from Victoria to Raymondville as well.

Officials also state that a phone company issue is to blame for the interruption, and that this is not at all related to the power interruptions earlier this morning.

Crews are now working on the issue, and the 911 system is expected to be repaired by 10:30 a.m.
