AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- The Richmond County government offices are able to take your calls and emails again.

Workers say there may still be a few sporadic outages, but the majority of the operations are up and running.

Earlier today, construction crews severed a cable line supplying internet and phone service. It knocked out every phone and email except for emergencies.

County government is on a VOIP telephone system, causing the phones to go down. There is also no email and no computer-assisted dispatch for dispatchers. However 911 and the non-emergency line are working on a back-up system.

They are now sure yet how the cable was sliced in two.

News 12's Ryan Houston will have more on the work to repair the line on News 12 First at Five and News 12 at 6 o'clock.
