MALONE — There was nothing wrong with your cellphones. Service had been lost due to a Sunday lightning strike on one of Verizon’s utility poles and the outage lasted about 19 hours, but workers were able to restore cell service by Monday afternoon.

The Telegram contacted the Verizon store in Malone, which confirmed the service outage was caused after lightning took out a pole.
