CenturyLink outage that affected Arizona customers continues Friday

The Boston Police Department said Friday there were 911 outages across MA.

"When an emergency strikes, it's critical that Americans are able to use 911 to reach those who can help", Pai said in a statement.

The outage only affected wireless 911 call, not landline calls.

The Iowa State Patrol said a county's 911 cellphone calls were being routed to the agency's office in Des Moines. The department said on social media that problems in Boston had been resolved but advised people to call the department's direct line if the problems returned.

It also condemned the attack on an Afghan government building in Kabul and Tuesday's auto bombing in Iraq's Tal Afar. The head of the UN mission in Libya (UNSMIL) denounced the "cowardly terrorist attack" in a statement .

Some CenturyLink customers across the country were without the internet as outages stretched from NY to California. The company said the mysterious "network element" issue impacted service at 15 of its data centers, across both Europe and North America. It's unclear if and how the CenturyLink problems were related to the 911 outage, but tweets from the Seattle Police Department and Clark County 911 Dispatch indicated that they were connected.

Counties all over the USA reported downtimes of their 911 call centers over the past hours, impacting states such as Washington, Oregon, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Idaho, New Mexico, Missouri, Arizona, Colorado, and even some 911 services across the border, in Canada.

Capas said there had not been any reports of issues as of Friday morning.

Some reports told of people unable to get gas as card readers shut down at some gas stations, and others of ATM's glitching.
