Windstream customers with 483 area code can't call 911 from a landline


    Pottawattamie County Emergency Management Agency says Windstream customers in the Minden prefix area of 483 are experiencing a phone outage.

    Officials say this outage has disrupted 9-1-1 service to this area which means customers affected by this who need to call 9-1-1 should do so from a cell phone.

    If a cell phone is not available, Emergency Management asks customers to go to the Minden Fire Station for assistance.

    The service provider is currently making repairs to a washed out fiber line.

    The station will be staffed until service is restored.

    This outage does not affect CenturyLink customers.
