CALIFORNIA - Verizon is experiencing outages in multiple locations throughout the country. Chico, Willows, and Orland are ranked in the top 10 most reported locations for outages currently.

The Glenn County Sheriff's Office said as a reminder, your cell phone is still capable of calling 911 through the emergency call function, even during an outage likes this.

The outages can be viewed on Verizon's outage map. The most-reported locations: New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Oakland, Sacramento, Chico, Willows, Los Angeles, and Orland.

Verizon said the issue is related to a "Comcast fiber outage."

"A fiber issue is causing a service interruption in parts of Butte and Glenn Counties. Our engineers are aware of this issue and are working with the fiber provider, Comcast, to resolve this issue quickly," Heidi Flato with Verizon public relations said.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
