Re: New Natural Disaster! 8/27/2011 Hurricane IreneFrom: telmnstr () 757 org Date: Fri, 26 Aug 2011 22:23:36 -0400 (EDT)
The US Airforce has sent most of the fighters from the East Coast to
Indiana, what are you doing to prepare for the storm of the next 2 days?
Ready, Set, DISCUSS!
I'm probably the only one on the list from Southeastern Virginia
(Norfolk/Virginia Beach Area.) It's expected to be here tomorrow morning
Storm prep is mostly moving equipment from low lying areas that are
likely to get flooded. I'm sure the cellular companies are on standby with
generators for the sites that don't have permanant ones, if the fiber
network holds up.
In past storms our region has lost much of the metro fiber business
network from Cox due to power outages and lack of optical bypass switches
and other issues.
Previous storms that looked like they were bad were nothing.
Others that looked like nothing caused huge amounts of outages.
Time will tell!
