Albany - Albany's 911 center was without phone service for more than two hours Monday night. 

Emergency officials were able to communicate with each other using hand-held radios during the storm, but they couldn't answer your emergency calls.

The county used its new Code Red Emergency Alert system for the first time last night, and emergency managers say it worked well.

"From all indications so far from people that have called in to tell me hey I heard the Code Red, it called my house, the system went off. If you didn't a call and you know you signed up for it, the storm is plotted and those people in the direction of the storm are the ones that are called so not everyone will be called," said EMA Director Jim Vaught.

The 911 center was back up and running just before eleven o'clock.
