Didn't this happen in DC a few days ago. All of the 911 lines where down. www.abovetopsecret.com... Is there a major problem with this system. Maybe hackers?

It's no joke.

www.kmtv.com...


9-1-1 service in four Nebraska counties is currently not available due to a telephone service malfunction. The counties affected are Lancaster, Cass, Saunders and Butler.

Residents in all four counties should go the nearest fire station in the event of any type of emergency, including medical emergencies.

In Lancaster County, the 911 emergency communications center has activated five cellular telephones to receive requests for services. The numbers are:

450-0862 430-7518 416-7591 432-8517 450-1810

There're a couple other places reporting it, so I don't think it's an april fool's joke.

It looks to me like the winds knocked down a lot of phone lines, but... that seems like it would take a lot of very particular chance.

Thats for advisory 2, the 911 lines are too much of a coincidence, imo.

They're probably installing something or disabling something...who knows!

I cannot believe that the winds have knocked out the 911 service..those arent lines going overhead or anything as in the 60's.

Those are T1 carriers, and such things as Fiberoptics or something newer.

Something stinks

THEY ARE DOING WORK ON OUR LINES

Wouldn't doubt the wind has something to do with it.

Here in ND we have some nasty Gusts of wind at times, and usually it's always windy in someway. I've been all over south of here from ND down to Oklahoma atleast in Nebraska the weather is close to the same.


But then like dg said, it doesn't make sense.

This one's easy. They're estimating that they'll have it fixed by then. If it's fixed exactly at 12:45, THEN you'll have caught something.

It doesnt pay them to do that because at 12:45 people are going to call up and bitch. That's not generally done.

Solar flares are starting to hit. The earth changes are close. Stay close to the ground my comrades, when possible get to your basements. You have not seen anything yet. The atmosphere will undergo some changes in the next 12 - 14 months, and you all most pay heed to the warning signs from space.

I channeled this from Blossom Goodchild.

What Solar Flares? Are we looking at the same Sun or do you have your own special Sun in your sock drawer?

All this alarmism about the Sun is just silly. Old Sol is still asleep, solar activity very low. No flares in the last 24 hours and two tiny dying Sunspots that were never much anyway.

My family lives in Omaha. They have told me there was some kind of switch failure in Southeast Nebraska that brought the phone lines down. I'll provide a link to the info when I hear back from them!

Keep your eyes open and see how many of these things happen.

I think they are testing, getting ready. A dry run?
