9:00 AM - Due to a technical problem, the Tazewell and Mason county 911 phone systems are temporarily out of service. For emergencies, officials are asking the public to call the alternate landline numbers for any medical, fire, or police emergency until further notice. An estimated time for repairs was not available this morning, but according to Mason County officials, the issue lies with landline service provider CenturyLink.
