911 centers in Guilford, Forsyth and Alamance counties are all providing alternative numbers for callers who may be experiencing problems.

Several residents are unable to reach 911 and this is a problem that is impacting the Southeastern part of the United States, according to Greensboro city officials.

Authorities said 911 calls may be mistakenly routed to another 911 center in the area.

Residents in an emergency situation in Alamance County can temporarily call (336) 570-6777.
