HOWARD COUNTY, TX (KWES) - Some of Howard County's 9-1-1 equipment was being repaired on Tuesday.

Lightning during last Friday's storm knocked out the emergency services communication system forcing them to use the backup.

County Commissioners approved repairing the main system instead of replacing it.

That decision will save the county more than $25,000.

The sheriff hopes to have the full system up and running soon.
