Those NC DMV offices are back open again after unexpectedly closing

An internet network outage had forced the closing of 19 Division of Motor Vehicle driver license and license plate agency office in the Charlotte area and elsewhere, the state said Wednesday. But the offices were back open by 2 p.m.

The state Department of Transportation said crews repaired a major fiber optic cable that was cut Tuesday.

The offices that were forced to close stretched from the Charlotte area to the Triad.
