A suspected fiber-optic line cut affected Dubuque County as well as Jackson and Clinton counties in Iowa and Jo Daviess County in Illinois.

ORIGINAL STORY:

A suspected cut fiber optic line is causing major phone service disruption, hitting Dubuque, Jackson, Clinton and Jo Daviess counties in Iowa and Illinois.

Land lines, as well as some Verizon and U.S. Cellular service, are disrupted. However, 911 service for Dubuque County is still up and running.

City offices in Dubuque can't make or received calls, and staff are working to remedy the problem as quickly as possible.

Some internet service is impacted as well.
