READING, Pa. -

Verizon said more customers in Reading and Kenhorst lost landline phone service earlier this week because of vandals.

A spokesperson for Verizon said a line was cut near the Bingaman Street Bridge in Reading late Monday or early Tuesday.

That's near where vandals cut some lines last week.

Nearly 90 customers lost phone service earlier this week, but we're told things are operating normally now.

Last week's disruption affected about 300 customers.
