Something has caused the 9-1-1 system to go down in the Texarkana area this morning. Local officials say 9-1-1 is out of service currently in all of Texarkana and Bowie County. Authorities say if you have an emergency and need police, fire, or ems help to phone the non emergency number until the 9-1-1 system is back up and running.

The number to call is (903) 798-3876.

No word on how long it will take to get the emergency number back up and running.
