Lightning strike knocks out Marshall County’s E-911
Marshall County Enhanced 911 service was down for about 2 hours Friday, April 7, due to a direct hit to the center from lightning, according to director Jimmye Dale Green.
Service was down beginning at about 6:38 p.m. Friday, he said. It took about two hours for workers to trouble-shoot and correct the problem.
“So, if anyone tried to call between these hours, that was the reason they were unable to get through,” Green said.
