A number of US police departments in the United States reported Monday (local time) that their 911 lines were not operational. However, subsequently, some police departments also reported having restored the service. “The 911 lines are not operational across the country. This is for phone calls and text messaging. If you need police, fire, or emergency medical help in Minneapolis, please call 612-348-2345. We will let you know when this issue is resolved, ”Minneapolis Police wrote on Twitter.

If you are in Ramsey County, call 651-767-0640. There is no known time frame for returning 911 calls to service. We will update as needed. According to a Russia Today report, around 8 p.m. local time in Minnesota, some departments noted that 911 service had been restored, but outages appeared to continue in various counties in Nevada and elsewhere.
Previously, Russia Today reported that police and sheriff departments in Illinois, Nevada, Arizona, Ohio, Delaware, Minnesota, Indiana, Colorado, Pennsylvania and Minnesota noted problems with their emergency call systems Monday (local time). They asked residents to use alternative numbers as they work to correct the problem, allegedly caused by a technical failure in Microsoft’s Azure cloud services. As Microsoft was previously quoted as saying that a “subset of customers in the Azure Public and Azure Government clouds may experience errors,” it is believed to have caused the 911 outages. (ANI)
