Re: Verizon COs affected by WTC damage?

Our switch in New York has seen a complete loss of trunking to the WTC CO.
Earlier in the day individual T1s were down in a spotty manner between us
and that CO (peppered across the OC48), but now even the SONET ring has
dropped.  The CO was either in that building or adjacent to it I am told by
our techs in NYC.

We are now seeing overload on other trunks to the Verizon tandems.
