Our switch in New York has seen a complete loss of trunking to the WTC CO.
Earlier in the day individual T1s were down in a spotty manner between us
and that CO (peppered across the OC48), but now even the SONET ring has
dropped. The CO was either in that building or adjacent to it I am told by
our techs in NYC.
We are now seeing overload on other trunks to the Verizon tandems.

Subject: Verizon COs affected by WTC damage?
Verizon has/had a CO (NYCMNYST) in the South Tower of the Trade Center.
I would guess this is now destroyed. Does anyone know where exactly in
the tower or complex the CO was? They also had sales/administrative
offices there on a couple of floors there.
Covad is reporting that the West Street CO, near the WTC (NYCMNYWS, 140
West Street) currently has services affected due to a fire in the
building. Has anyone else heard about a fire there?
