[UPDATE 12:16 p.m.] TV and Phone Services Down on the West Coast
Residents along the West Coast have lost TV, computer, and phone services. At this point, we have been unable to reach any officials to comment, however, at least some of this appears to be related to the large number of fires that broke out in Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma, and Napa Counties.
We’ll update when we get more information.
