A "total failure" is what Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Sharon Bulova called the 911 outages in the county, NBC4 reports. The exact cause is still unknown, but NBC4 reports that officials "believe it stems from the Verizon Command Center in Arlington, Va."
As of 3:50 p.m. the Fairfax County Emergency Information website reported that "911 has been partially restored to Fairfax County. If you cannot get through, please call 703-691-7561 or 703-691-3680."
In the wake of the storm that slammed Northern Virginia Friday night, the region is experiencing an impact to the 911 phone system, according to an alert from Fairfax County.
A spokesperson could not be reached because of issues with telephone service.
Northern Virginia residents are recommended to go to their local police or fire station for assistance.
