Windstream outage corrected

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - A loss of phone and internet service lasted more than six hours early this morning, but Windstream reports it is now operating.

The outage primarily affected around 15,000 customers in Moore County including those in Dumas, Sunray and Cactus.

"There may have been some pockets of broadband (internet) interruption in other places," said Windstream spokesman David Avery.

A loss of electrical power at the company's office in Dumas took down service about 4 a.m. After Xcel Energy replaced a transformer, the service returned about 10:30 a.m, Avery said.
