Around 1 pm today, Verizon cellular service and Charter services went down. If you watch Channel 6 through Charter, or are trying to reach city employees through their cell phones, you will have noticed this. We received notice from Charter that one of their fibers was cut, affecting services throughout Red Wing. Crews have identified the location of the cut and Charter has fiber splicers en route. We're looking forward to have services restored soon.
