There was a major outage of 911 service overnight in northwest Oregon and all of Washington.

It appeared to start with CenturyLink in Oregon and then spread to the company's system in Washington.

Callers were told to use non-emergency numbers for dispatch centers.

CenturyLink is investigating the cause.

The outage was restored around 7 a.m. Thursday.
