Kentucky State Police along with other regional law enforcement agencies are reporting a region-wide outage of 911 services. 

Murray State Police issued this statement earlier today with alternate contact options: "Due to a statewide outage of AT&T service, please contact MSU Police Department at 270-753-0022, Murray Police Department at 270-753-1621 and Calloway County Sheriff's Office at 270-753-3151 until further notice."

The Kentucky State Police provided the following information if citizens encounter an emergency:

" Post 1 personnel is requesting the public in the Post 1 district who cannot get through by calling 911 to utilize the following phone numbers: 502-395-1698, 502-395-1691, 502-682-0379, 502-682-1025. The public can also call the Mayfield Police Department dispatch line at 270-856-3749 and 270-856-4013."

The outage throughout the region is reportedly due to the downtown Nashville explosition that occurred early on Christmas morning.
