Rochelle Park NJ CO in the news again

Bell Atlantic's (now Verizon) Rochelle Park NJ was in the news again.  The
central office experienced a clocking failure around Midnight on Friday
resulting in errors on circuits in the region.  It was repaired about
7am.  Verizon says the failure was not related to the current work stoppage.

You may remember, Rochelle Park as the central office flooded during Hurricane
Floyd last September.  AT&T and BA had a bit of a tiff over who left some
doors open, and who was responsible for the basement flooding.  Bell Atlantic
alleged the flooding was caused because AT&T left the rear doors of the building

Both the FCC and the NJ BPU (NJ's version of a PUC) launched investigations
into the flooding and loss of service.  I found NJ's report on their web site
at  I haven't found
the FCC's report, even though it was scheduled to be completed by now.
