Numbers to call for help in East Tennesse after 911 service disruptions

Some 911 call centers said the disruptions began after an explosion in Downtown Nashville on Christmas morning.

Emergency call centers across Tennessee reported issues Friday and urged people with emergencies to call non-emergency lines instead of dialing 911. 

Some 911 centers blamed the service outages on an explosion in Downtown Nashville Friday morning. Also, the Associated Press reported Friday afternoon that flights out of the Nashville airport had been halted because of telecommunications issues.
