911 Dispatch back up in Williamsburg County

WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - 911 service has been restored in Williamsburg County.

We learned overnight that calls were having to be rerouted to Clarendon County.

Officials say that's because a fiber optic cable was cut and caused the system to go down.

A supervisor with Williamsburg County dispatch confirms the lines have been fixed.
