Phone service issues that made it difficult for some St. Louis and Carlton County residents to call 911 emergency services Wednesday have been repaired.

There were reports of CenturyLink landlines and AT&T cell service being interrupted.

Residents should now be able to reach 911 from cellphones and landlines without any issues, a news release from St. Louis County said Friday.
