Corporal Kristi Bennett with the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department has confirmed that Windstream landlines have been fully restored and 911 is now functioning properly.

Earlier this morning (Jan 30), Windstream landlines were experiencing an outage in Bowie County as well as in Miller County and 911 was not working. People with emergencies were asked to call another number but once again landlines have been repaired and 911 is now working as normal.

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department and Windstream thanks you for your patience.
