The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services announced that AT&T is currently dealing with a statewide outage in North Dakota today. The outage is expected to last at least into the afternoon.

The outage is effecting the ability of some AT&T customers to make and receive calls, but texting is still available with an internet connection.

This outage of course can be problematic for anyone having an emergency situation. The NDDES says that in the case of emergency, those with an internet connection should text 911. They are also asking AT&T to not test their phone by calling or texting 911, as that is still reserved for emergencies.
