'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A landline outage on Thursday morning temporarily prevented about 5,000 Verizon customers with phone numbers in the 412 area code from calling 911.

Customers with the exchanges 819, 881, 882, 884, 885 and 886 were able call each other within those exchanges, but not outside, Allegheny County spokeswoman Amie Downs said.

The outage was fixed by about 7:20 a.m.
