    It seems like I have VPS in every potentially affected location (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York.. :) but well.. that's not really important. I hope all the best for people and their property in those areas.

  • I hope the people there stay safe.

    I don't necessarily expect a problem with my New York VPS, but I failed it over to another location just to be on the safe side.

    I was just about to create a thread too after I ate dinner but I just saw this. They were going on about it quite a bit on the radio here in the UK, I hope everyone in the affected areas will stay safe. :)

    Stay safe! LET has a lot of members but I do not think we want to lose anyone to storm. Please be very careful.

    I thought he is working for Hostbluff now? And as far as I know, Hostbluff is UK based so he should be OK.

  • Stuck in the brunt of it in Central New Jersey. Not too good here. A few trees down, but surprisingly my power's not out yet. My personal weather station just recorded a gust 92 MPH (148 KMH), to give you some perspective.

    I'm in the central United States so weather is fine here. But this hurricane looks pretty bad. The good news is most people seem to have been prepared.

  • IMPORTANT: BURSTNET® HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS NOTICE

    IMPORTANT: BURSTNET® HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS NOTICE

    Hurricane Sandy continues to approach the Northeastern section of the United States, with landfall expected between Northern Virginia and Connecticut late Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning. At this time, BurstNET® has completed all precautionary measures to reduce the risk of network impact during the storm or otherwise make repairs as quickly as possible. The latest forecast indicates that the storm will impact the coasts of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York, as well as reach inland into Pennsylvania, with strong winds, heavy rain, and potential flooding. The aforementioned states have declared a state of emergency in preparation for this storm event.

    BurstNET® has completed the following action items in preparation for the arrival of Hurricane Sandy:

    BurstNET® performed generator tests, and ensured proper operation, while ensuring all fuel levels were at a maximum. BurstNET does have a contract with a local fuel company to have a tanker delivered on-site upon the startup of generators.

    BurstNET® has confirmed the availability of all of its fiber companies have contractors in the region, while ensuring they have the necessary storm clearing equipment to expedite restoration should such become necessary.

    BurstNET® has additional staff along with electrical contractors on standby should such become necessary. At this point, we do not anticipate service impact related to this storm at our Scranton PA facility, as the storm should weaken considerably once it gets as far inland as Northeastern Pennsylvania. BurstNET® can run for lengthy periods of time on emergency power, should utility power be affected to the facility. The BurstNET® facility is also not in a flood risk zone, and is located on high ground. The highest risk is to fiber optic connectivity to the facility, which runs to diverse/multiple locations towards the worst of the storm: New York City and Philadelphia. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and maintain our preparations with increased staffing levels and heightened awareness of our facilities in the storm path. The BurstNET® support team will be available 24/7 throughout this event. BurstNET® will continue to provide further updates on our preparations and operations until the threat of this storm has passed. Please feel free to contact us with any specific questions or concerns that you may have.

    So it could affect OVH's US/Canada DC?

  • @Jack said: So it could affect OVH's US/Canada DC?

    I don't know if it'll have that much impact on it. Hurricanes lose strength and energy when they get over land; by the time it reaches OVH's datacenter, it might just be a heavy rain.

    I am no longer affiliated with IPXcore.
  • Highly unlikely to have any effect over OVH's DC. As @Damian said .. It might not be even that heavy rain.

  • Just got mail from Castlegem

    Dear GBSHouse.com, this is just a short notification to let you know that Sandy is gaining strength at the moment, with the current estimate for gusts reaching around 80-90mph in our area. Onsite technicians are performing comprehensive walkthroughs throughout the facility every hour, and there are no problem reports at this time. If we experience any issues, we will of course be communicating updates through the night! Thank you for your understanding! Your Castlegem Team

    Impressive :)

    As much as we always moan about the weather in the UK, we are immensely fortunate that it's not subject to such extremes of nature.

    Hope everybody and their families stay safe.

    Was evacuated out of lower Manhattan :S - tis no joke friends. I volunteer with an ambulance crew over here as an EMT, we sent 4 ambulances from central NY (where they are also needed) to assist in the city. Apparently the emergency calls are already raining in.

    @zhuanyi said: 5 confirmed death in New York State according to CNN.

    Ten nationwide so far per AP; Gawker, Buzzfeed and HuffPo outages due to power loss and five feet of water.

    Now "at least 11".

    Per BBC: "..high waters prompted concern at the Oyster Creek nuclear power plan in southern New Jersey at 20:45 EST, the US Nuclear Regulatory Committee said. However, there are no current plans to shut down the plant, which is located 40 miles south of Atlantic City. The oldest nuclear power plant in the US, Oyster Creek is currently undergoing scheduled maintenance, the NRC said."

    There's a failure with this router. We are investigating.

    Massive floods have happened in the South of the Manhattan Island in New York, diving in the dark after the end of the "super-storm" Sandy. The router nyk-1-6k is located in this area.

  • My VPS in New York is down (@ Steadfast DC). It sounds like they ran on generator for awhile, but still ran into problems and shut down.

    Safety is the most important thing.

  • It's why you don't build DC's on island's. :D

  • My VoIP service in New York (@ Callcentric) is also down. They apparently didn't even have generators -- just a UPS.

    How about Amsterdam / Netherlands then? It's mostly below sea level. God forbid if something as bad happens there, the internet in the whole Europe would be screwed for a long time.

    @rds100 said: How about Amsterdam / Netherlands then? It's mostly below sea level. God forbid if something as bad happens there

    It's a good thing then that there are almost no natural disasters in central/northern Europe then :D The only real danger for the Netherlands is global worming and the rising sea level, but that won't happen abrupt and they have a pretty sophisticated flood protection system.

    @gsrdgrdghd said: It rather sounds like the media is blowing it out of proportion.

    Looks like nothing very terrible at all happened...

  • @gsrdgrdghd Despite the sophisticated flood protection system i think the only thing that can save them in the long term is buying/importing as much rock and earth as they can, piling it up essentially rising their land level above the sea level.

  • @gsrdgrdghd @randy

    Depending on what your classification of "terrible" is. DC's without power, DC's flooded, DC's without network connectivity, etc.

    As far as how many, a lot of them in lower manhatten that I am aware of, some in NJ, some in CT, and a few misc ones along the seaboard all have some sort of an issue.

    @gsrdgrdghd said: global worming

    worms will be eating us all :) Well, a hurricane over cold water so much up north is not bound to be very disruptive, especially a category 1. The only thing about it is that it is rather rare and ppl there are not so prepared as the rest of the folks in the south. If a hurricane was to hit romania, I am sure much more death would have occurred. Here snowstorms are killing ppl, regular floods and recently tornadoes.
