Yes.  +1-800-MFS-CITY was able to confirm there's a significant outage
somewhere around BWI/PHL/IAD, but could not offer an estimated repair
time, information regarding the cause of this failure, or anything
else of interest.  I was told Worldcom also lost power in one of their
NYC metro area facilities last night, resulting in approximately 90
48's (carrying what, I do not know) down, but I believe that's since
been resolved and these two incidents are totally unrelated.
