Verizon telco outage in LongBeach, CA

Verizon California is reporting a loss of local
telephone service in Long Beach, California. Calls
into and out of the area are not possible. They are
advising citizens to use their wireless carriers
for 911 service. As 911 calls are connected to the
CA Highway Patrol here, that could delay emergency
response times quite significantly.
