KERRVILLE, Texas – The city of Kerrville said Saturday that the 911 emergency phone line has been repaired after being unavailable to most residents Friday.

The line was downed after a fiber optic line was cut, resulting in downed lines in Kerrville, Kerr County, and possibly other areas. That line has since been repaired.

During the outage, the city directed residents in emergencies to a temporary emergency phone line and law enforcement offices for help.
