Phone, internet service cut to much of Ocean Springs

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - Much of downtown Ocean Springs was without phone and internet service Wednesday afternoon after construction crews accidentally severed a cable near Government Street and Martin Luther King Blvd.

According to Ocean Springs Public Information Officer Johnnie Bernhard, crews working on Phase II of the city's Street Scape Project in downtown Ocean Springs hit the buried cable at around 2pm Wednesday afternoon.

It could take all night to repair the cable, but 911 Emergency Service is still working, and regular Police and Fire will operate by radio.
