Power is a continuing issue in lower Manhattan. Several locations
are still on generator. ConEdision is working with some folks on
fuel deliveries and even loaning generators.
According to "The Net Economy" news letter, additional carriers are
being stressed by the long-term nature of the outage. We are well
beyond the "normal" emergency design conditions even NEBS facilities
were designed to handle.
Sprint Communications reported outages in New York and Connecticut
as the result of power fluctuations to a south Manhattan switching
facility that supports Sprint's networks. The fluctuations began
about 2:30 a.m., and affected voice and data customers. The carrier
is working to resolve the problem.
