Callers will soon need to dial the area code

HARRISBURG — The state Public Utility Commission has announced that dialing local numbers will require entering the 570 area code starting September 21st. The change is needed because of a new area code, 272, which will be given to consumers receiving a new phone number starting October 21st. Anyone who applies for a new number will receive the new 272 area code. The new area code was needed since all 570 numbers have been exhausted. (Ali Stevens)
