WILLAIMS DISPATCH CENTER KNOCKED OUT BY LIGHTNING STRIKE

A light­ning strike Sun­day after­noon knocked out the Williams County 911 Cen­tral dis­patch cen­ter, shut­ting down the county’s radio net­work and tak­ing all the com­put­ers there off line for about 45 min­utes.

It hap­pened when the bolt hit just before 5:25 yes­ter­day after­noon.

By about 6pm, the pri­mary line was back up, but the sys­tem crashed again before finally being re-booted and back on-line.

Other than dis­rup­tions to some com­mu­ni­ca­tions, no injuries were reported.
