The city of Detroit, Wayne County, Wayne State University, Redford
and Livonia were hit by the power failure at 12:45pm.  Detroit airport
is operating on emergency power.  Detroit Public Lighting's computer
center also lost power.  DPL is hooking up portable generators to its
computer center so it can then determine the exent of the outage and
when it will be repaired.

I'm sitting in the middle of this problem.  Our computer center is
currently running on a DPL generator (since about 1pm yesterday).  As of
right now no resolution in sight.  Our backbone network is half powered
down at the moment.  Last I heard they said that we would have power by
3am (2.5 hours ago).
