Officials searching for cause of 911 call misdirects

Posted: Updated:

Last Friday, 911 calls made cellphones across the state were redirected to Des Moines dispatch.

Officials say it was the due to an issue with the Iowa Communications Network, a series of fiber-optic cables that run across the state.

Authorities are still not sure what caused the issue, but they are working with Homeland Security and the Enhanced 911 techs to determine the source.

The issue has been resolved.
