Craig affected by disruption in Verizon service Sunday, Monday

Winds a factor in technical problems

Recent service issues for Verizon Wireless impacted Craig on Sunday and Monday when equipment from the telecommunications provider malfunctioned.

Meagan Dorsch, public relations consultant for the mountain region, said maintenance crews were unable to seek out the "disruption in service" right away.

“Because of snow, weather and terrain, crews could not head out until Monday morning,” she said. “The site had to be accessed by snowcat.”

Dorsch said high winds Sunday evening were the cause of the troubles, damaging a microwave dish and affecting cellular towers.

Service was restored to Verizon users about 4 p.m. Monday.
