Kentucky officials announce the state’s newest area code.
Three-six-four will replace portions of the 270 area code in Henderson, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, Murray and Paducah.
The Kentucky Public Service Commission announced the need for a new area code last month. The commission cited the increasing number of wireless devices in the state.
The new area code is scheduled to take effect October 1, 2008, but the timeline could change if an order comes from the Federal Communications Commission.
