The disruption to the authority's communications network has been ongoing following a small electrical fire and suspected power surge yesterday.
People are currently being urged not to call the council unless it is absolutely necessary, but the authority's usual emergency telephone numbers will be in effect as normal throughout the weekend.
Wendy Thomson, managing director of Norfolk County Council, said: 'I'd like to thank staff for working hard to minimise disruption to the public and a special thanks to those who are giving up their Bank Holiday weekends to ensure we're fully operational as soon as possible.
