Verizon wireless service down

Reports indicate that Verizon wireless service, and perhaps others, went down Friday afternoon, possibly caused by the huge winter storm pummeling the northeastern United States.

A check on the internet confirmed the loss of wireless services throughout eastern Pennsylvania, plus nearby states.

The outage appears to have occurred about 3 p.m. or so.

As of this report at 4:30 p.m., only texting was available, not phone calls via wireless services.
