If you need to call for emergency services

A widespread internet/phone outage has slowed communications between local police and fire departments. 

Likewise, this has affected calls into the dispatch center. In the meantime, calls can be made to Bates County Sheriffs Office dispatch for non emergencies at 660-464-2236.  

At this time, 911 is still working for emergencies.

Mid America Live will update as soon as there is new information or when the problem has been resolved.
We received information that a fiber optic line has been cut and damaged.
