RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Verizon experienced outages in Central Virginia on Tuesday, causing problems for numerous customers trying to make calls.
An online outage map showed that several areas along the East Coast -- including the Richmond area -- were impacted Tuesday morning.
The issue prompted Hanover officials to urge Verizon Wireless users to make calls using another provider or a landline for a short time.
A Verizon spokesperson said Tuesday afternoon that the outage was caused by a "hardware issue."
