Senate offices experiencing phone issues

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Some people have been complaining on Tuesday that they had not been able to reach the office of Senator Mary Landrieu.

It turns out, the entire phone system at the Senate has experienced a high call volume, and that is having an effect on people being able to reach certain offices in Washington.

The office of Senator Landrieu assures KPLC that it is not blocking calls, but a technical problem is causing some problems with transfers and voicemail.
