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.
