Internet and phone services were disrupted Tuesday afternoon in parts of coastal Mendocino County due to what officials said was an AT&T outage.

The service disruption originated in Fort Bragg and was affecting landline services along the coast, including 9-1-1 dispatch and DSL internet, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter.

Residents who were unable to reach 9-1-1 with an emergency were urged to call 707-961-2800 for law enforcement, fire or medical assistance, according to the Sheriff’s Office. County officials temporarily boosted emergency staffing along the coast, state Sen. Mike McGuire said in a tweet.

“Take care of yourself. Try to help your neighbors,” Ted Williams, a Mendocino County supervisor, said in a tweet. “Extra presence in impacted area.”

AT&T crews were called “to fix the fiber/phone line cut,” McGuire tweeted. “No estimated time for restoration.”

An AT&T spokesperson told The Chronicle the company was looking into the issue. Additional information was not immediately available.
