LEXINGTON, Okla. – Authorities say inmates at one Oklahoma facility will have to wait a little longer to call home.

On Monday, officials with the Department of Corrections announced that several housing units at Lexington Correctional Center are experiencing a phone outage.

Agency leaders say phone service should be restored to housing units 4,5 and 6 by Tuesday.

Officials say that crews who were repairing a water line on the property accidentally cut the phone line.
