Phone problems continue at LCPD

The following message was received at the KPLC newsroom just before 1 p.m. Saturday:

from LCPD: Our direct phone lines to the police department are down due to the storm...call 911 for a police response until they are restored....

The Lake Charles Police Department issued an earlier text alert that its telephone service had been restored. However, power outages and system failures have made it difficult for crews to troubleshoot all of the problems caused by Friday night's storms.
