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.
