Verizon outage hits valley

Verizon users throughout the Roaring Fork Valley reported connection trouble on Monday afternoon, with intermittent connectivity for calls, text and data.

Jenny Weaver, southwest area spokesperson for Verizon Wireless, confirmed a “service disruption.”

The cause of the disruption, which started at about 12:30 p.m., was unknown as of 6 p.m., but data transfer trouble between cell towers and the phone grid was indicated as a possibility.

“We have our technicians on site,” said Weaver. “They’re working very quickly to get that service back.”
