WINONA, Minn. (WXOW) - Several counties in southeastern Minnesota lost their 9-1-1 service Sunday night.

Winona, Wabasha, Goodhue, Olmsted, Freeborn, and Mower counties all had 9-1-1 systems that weren't available for the public.

Instead, residents were directed to call the Winona County non-emergent line to reach 9-1-1 dispatch during the outage.

CenturyLink released the following statement on Monday morning:

On Sunday evening, some customers in Southern Minnesota may have experienced disruptions to 911 service due to a technical issue. Network technicians restored service shortly after 1 a.m. this morning and are investigating the issue.

Winona County Emergency Management Director Ben Klinger said that 9-1-1 service was restored around 3:30 a.m.
