LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- There was a rude awakening this morning for thousands of people and dozens of local businesses.

Their link to the outside world, at least their Internet access, was severed.

CenturyLink customers in the valley got caught up in a huge nationwide outage. For much of the morning they had no access to the web and businesses had to scramble to make other plans.

News 3's Jerry Brown joins us with more on yet another reminder of how dependent many of us have become on staying connected.
