Rochelle Park and North Carolina
Bell Atlantic indicates 95%-99% of the telephone service should be restored from their New Jersey Rochelle Park office by 9am Monday morning. Bell Atlantic and AT&T Wireless, who also has equipment in the same building, have put updates on their web sites and issued media releases about their progress. Apparently in the past BA had used a half-dozen pumps to keep the water out of the building, but residents in the area complained that practice made the flooding worse in their houses, so they weren't used this time. At its peak, 99 Bell Atlantic reported central offices on backup power. Something to watch out for the next few days in North Carolina. Due to road damage from flooding, diesel deliveries are iffy in much of eastern North Carolina. Unless power is restored, some facility generators may run dry.
