847 Area Code Problems

For the last 10-12 hours (July 14 @ 4:00pm CST onward) I've been
seeing fast busy signals dialing from land lines, and various "All
circuits are busy" and "Service unavailable" and other type messages
on cell phones on local calls (calls within the 847 area code)

I've been able to confirm that I can dial my toll free number (which
terminates to a 817 number), and that when I set my Vonage phone
(totally different area code) to ring for 10 seconds then forward to
847, it rings 10 seconds then goes back to a "All circuits are busy"

In some cases after dialing I can hear touchtone keys, approx 30ms and
very regular pattern (machine dialed, not human dialed)

Anybody else seeing similar?
