AMHERST, N.Y. -- The Amherst Town Highway Department is without phone service due to this past weekend's rain.
Officials say the rain caused flooding to an underground facility owned by Verison which contains wiring for the town's telephone equipment.
Phones for the highway department have been out of service since Saturday and it is not known when service will be restored.
Until phone service is restored to the highway department, residents can contact the department through the town supervisor's office at: 716-631-4032 or 716-631-7034. You can also email the Town Highway Supervisor at: firstname.lastname@example.org
