911 outage in 6 Tenn. counties

The counties are Weakley, Henderson, Gibson, Hardin, Carroll, and Decatur.

The Weakley County Sheriff’s office says the outage is for cell phones only. You can still call on a landline there. If you call on a cell phone, you will only hear silence.

You should either call on a landline or, if by cell, call 731-364-5454 instead of 911.
