HASTINGS, Fla. -- Windstream Telephone Service is being cut in Hastings and as a result customers won't be able to call 911 or outside their immediate geographic area.

In order to assist citizens in being able to reach the Sheriff's Office or from Fire and Rescue, dispatchers have been sent to St. Johns Fire Station 8 to answer calls from those affected and then relay those calls for assistance to the Sheriff's Office or Fire and Rescue.

If you need to reach 911 from the Hastings, Elkton and Flagler Estates area please call 904-692-3303.

Until the situation is resolved, the affected Windstream customers are only able to call customer to customer within a small geographic area of Hastings.

They are working to make repairs to the system at this time.
