Re: Minneapolis: 2 reports of tornado touchdowns
Representing a large enterprise company in the twin cities, we didn't feel any impact from the storms as far as our carriers go (we use the big 3, RBOC and others); no blips. The areas affected are "suburban" for lack of a better term without much carrier presence (CO's are obviously abundant, but they took it well AFAIK). In other news our data center (located in one of hard-hit areas) switched over to generator without even a flicker of the lights and all is well there. So, success stories from my perspective. Being a paid-on-call firefighter for one of those suburbs, well, that was a different story and way off topic. - Scott > Tornadoes aren't an unheard-of phenomenon in the Midwest, and smart NSPs > and ISPs will have planned for such events.
